Ornamental fish pond, water fountain, botanical garden, rose garden, children’s park and an agriculture museum have been constructed spending ₹50 lakh, said the officials here on Wednesday. They added that projects worth ₹10 crore will be implemented in the next phase and NABARD has accorded administrative sanction for a ₹7-crore project.
