There is a reason why anyone and everyone gives credit to CIDCO as far as making cities is concerned. The garden is a testimony of the good work of CIDCO. Its hard to relate such greenery with Kalamboli but it is Kalamboli ! CIDCO has once again proven why they are not just city makers but good city makers. In the heart of Kalamboli at Sector 2, this garden is getting a major facelift by CIDCO. It is first of its own kind and truly unique for Navi Mumbai. The garden is multifunctional as there are amphitheater for cultural events, separate play park for children with well equipped playthings, well structured paths with plants and flowers on both sides, fountain, green lawn, toilets, proper sitting arrangements; moreover the provision of refreshment stall have made this place a hit with visitors. Perhaps that’s why the locals of Kalamboli cannot wait for the garden to open. We spoke with the Asst. Executive Engineer of CIDCO; he said that CIDCO Managing Director G.S. Gill and former Jt. Managing Director Deepak Kapoor initiated this proposal for which a provision of Rs. 1 crore was made. The contract has been awarded to M/s Bheravnath Construction Co. and the work began in August last year. While speaking about the facilities he said that the garden has been planned with something for both the youth and senior citizens. While there’s no matching for CIDCO’s style of development, maintenance is always an issue. The officer assured that in the case of Kalamboli garden there will be no complaints as the horticulture dept. will take care of it. While there’s no doubt that CIDCO is doing a great job residents hope that the maintenance will be as good too. While With cameraperson Kala Jadhav, Shilpa Suryawanshi for NMTV News.
