The Municipal Corporation, after its formation has developed Fragrance Garden in Sector 36, Shanti Kunj in Sector 16, Garden of Annuals, Sector 44, Green Belts Sector 30, 15, 38 & 40. These Gardens and Green belts are enjoyed by the residents during the morning and evening walks. The standards of maintenance of these Gardens and Green Belts can be well imagined from the above photographs. The Corporation has also developed about 400 Parks in the residential areas by providing railing and children playing equipments. Many of these parks have been developed out of the funds provided by Member Parliament under MPLAD Scheme.
