PINK PARKS IN DELHI

Sakshi Nagar 26-05-2023 02:57 PM News

Women, men, and children are often seen walking together in the parks in the morning or evening. But before entering any park in Delhi, do check once whether men are allowed in that park. Because now 'Pink Parks' are being built in Delhi keeping in mind the safety of women. According to the statement, the plan envisages the development of 17 parks in the Central Zone, 10 parks each in the South Zone and Karol Bagh Zone, 5 parks in the City SP Zone, 22 parks in Shahdara North Zone, 13 parks in Shahdara South Zone, 6 parks in Narela Zone, 28 parks in Rohini Zone, 6 parks in the West Zone, 17 parks in Najafgarh Zone, 18 parks in Keshav Puram Zone, and 5 parks in the Civil Zone.

Yes, there are about 15,000 parks in Delhi under MCD, out of which some parks will be selected and converted into pink parks in which men will not be allowed to enter. Women will be able to roam in these parks with their children. Special arrangements will also be made for children in the parks. Questions have often been raised regarding the safety of women in Delhi. In such a situation, keeping women in mind, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has decided to make some parks where only women and children can roam. Men will not be allowed to enter these parks. The park will be designed keeping in mind the convenience of women. Special care will also be taken to ensure that the accompanying children do not get bored. According to media reports, children up to 10 years of age will be allowed to visit these parks.

Pink Park will be designed keeping women and children in mind. According to media reports, these parks will be decorated with pink color. Graffiti on the walls of the park, gym facility, toilets, and CCTV cameras will also be installed to ensure the safety of women. The park will be decorated in such a way that the women and children coming here do not feel bored at all. Gym equipment in the park will also be decorated with pink color. Comfortable seats will be made keeping women and children in mind so that women can sit there and laugh and joke and get rid of their whole day's tiredness. There will also be walking tracks and swings for children in Pink Park. The pilot project has started According to media reports, MCD has made Mata Sundari Park a 'Pink Park' under the pilot project. Here women are seen roaming, playing, and relaxing with their children up to 10 years of age. There are about 15,000 parks under MCD, out of which there are plans to convert some parks into 'Pink Parks'.

However, this is not the first time that a park is being designed exclusively for women. Years ago, Zenana Park and Parda Park existed in Delhi, where only women could enter. According to the reports, the concept of developing special spaces for women in the city, such as parks, dates back to the 19th century. Parda Bagh, located on Netaji Subhash Marg in the Daryaganj area, was the city's first zenana (for women) park. The entrance to Parda Bagh was guarded by two tall strong Pathan women and children above the age of nine were not allowed to enter it. It was an open space where women could walk freely and move around without worrying about other people. The park was also used by women active in the freedom struggle to hold meetings. In 2019, the Shahjahanabad Redevelopment Corporation (SRDC) decided to revive Zanana Park as a part of the Jama Masjid Complex redevelopment plan, but the project was never implemented. It is expected that now with this scheme women will be able to get a special space for them.
