THIRUMANGALAM: New park in Asiad Colony

THE ASIAD Colony is situated in Anna Nagar West, between Thirumangalam junction and Anna Nagar West bus terminus. Between Asiad Colony and Rohini Flats, an area comprising about 18 grounds had been earmarked for developing a park.

Now the park, thanks to the efforts of the Ambattur Municipal authorities and the colony residents, is well-developed. Not only residents of the Asiad Colony, but also those living in the neighbourhood have done their bit towards the development of the park.

The park boasts of an indoor auditorium, colourful water fountain, walking bay, benches, two-face tower clock, children's play material, educative slogans on the walls, a four-feet statue of Tamil poet Valluvar and a number of sodium vapour lamps.
