Children's Park in Gandhinagar
The city of Gandhinagar was founded in 1960 as the capital city of Gujarat when it declared itself as an independent state and separated out of the Bombay state. The design and architecture of Gandhinagar was then set in motion with the help of two pioneer planners named Prakash Apte and H.K. Mewada. The Children's Park was a prominent part of the architectural plan and was introduced with the motive of making Gandhinagar an eco-friendly and green city. With a huge collection of beautiful flora, the Children's park attains an unmatchable beauty in spring when all flowers bloom. An unique combination of dancing flowers, fluttering butterflies, playing kids and soft breeze of air can be seen in spring. It gives an inner peace to each and every visitor of the park.
