May 27, 2019: An ecotourism hub is being developed in Noida; it will feature a wetland, herbal garden and a biodiversity park. On the verge of completion, this park in Sector 91 cover a huge area of 146 acres and is 1.5 time bigger green than the famous Lodhi Garden in Delhi. After its inauguration, this park will become the biggest green zone in the whole of Delhi-NCR.

As of now, the herbal garden (24 ac) and city forest (35 ac) are already completed , while the work on biodiversity park (75 ac) is still in progress and will get over soon. Right now, the work of planting 8000 trees is going on in the garden.

In additional, the Noida authority is working hard to complete the revival of the wetland before monsoon hits the city. It is expected that the work would see completion by the end of the may or beginning of June. Besides, experts are hoping to witness 15 species of birds during winter season.

One of the prime obstacles in wetland development was the presence of construction debris in the region. However, the authority, along with the help of residents living in nearby sector, managed to get rid of them and has  managed to develop a pond for birds.

When it comes to green areas, there are many in the Delhi-NCR region and Lodhi Garden in Delhi is probably one of the best ones, quit popular among the tourist too. Besides, there are huge green areas in NCR too, such as the Aravali Biodiversity Park (390 ac) in Gurgaon and Yamuna Biodiversity Park (457 ac) in Delhi.
