After the clock tower, Dr. Visveswaraya Tower Park has got a new attraction – a fountain located near the entrance of the park on Third Main Road.

This is the eighth one in the park. “The Tower Park is one of the most visited public places in the city and new facilities like these add to its value,” said S. Priya, a resident of Anna Nagar.

This park is the only one in the neighbourhood to have so many fountains on its premises. This is mainly attributed to the fact that the park covers an extensive area of 15.35 acres.

It is learnt that many senior bureaucrats and top businessman, who live in the neighbourhood, come here for their morning walk every day. Apart from high profile visitors, people from areas including Vadapalani, Padi, Ambattur, Mogappair, Choolaimedu, N.S.K. Nagar and Koyambedu visit the park daily. “Earlier, there was a fountain on the same spot but it was in disrepair. So, we replaced it with a new one as this part of the park is not covered by a fountain,” said a Corporation official.
