In second stage, the JDA would develop 20 hectares and remaining 18 hectares will be taken in the last stage. The work to develop second stage will be initiated after two years,“ an official said. The park will represent a unique desert eco-system. “We will develop natural vegetation in the park like that of Thar Desert which would include trees, shrubs and species of herbs. Seeds and sand will be brought from Jaisalmer to develop flora in the park,“ he added.
The park falls in the Vidhyadhar Nagar region, which is nearly 15 km away from the main city.
