The Central Park at Madhavadhara VUDA Colony is the highlight of the colony. It has a well-maintained shuttle court, cricket coaching academy with nets, a simple pagoda, an open meeting place with permanent concrete benches and a table under the shade of trees, a walking track and some play equipment for children.
The vacant site earmarked for the park remained vacant for a long time before the park was developed about four years ago. There is a room for conduct of health services and for senior citizens to hold their meetings. “Park president A. Nageswara Rao has made relentless efforts for getting most of the amenities and after I joined about a year later, I introduced accounting system and took steps to help it gain self-sufficiency,” says Mr. T. Varahala Raju, treasurer of the park.
“Two shops have been constructed on one corner of the park and they are generating good revenue. A nominal fee of Rs.100 a month is being charged from those using the shuttle court or the cricket coaching services. A fixed deposit has also been opened and the interest on it and the revenue being raised are enough to pay the watchman’s salary and ensure proper maintenance of the park,” says Mr. Raju.
