Poor maintenance of public parks

Dear Editor,
Public parks are the lungs of the locality, where residents come and refresh their tired and fatigued minds. But in our city, the park is not well maintained or say, not at all maintained. It suffers due to the utter neglect of the authorities. The residents of nearby areas are using the area as a public convenience. Moreover, some rowdies create disturbance and do not help in the upkeep of the park. Miscreants sit and gamble here in broad daylight. They create disturbance and affect the normal health and hygiene of the common man. In reality, the park, presently, is a safety heaven for all types of evil characters. Also, the park has become the favourite halting place of stray cattle and dogs. If no immediate actions are taken, the park will turn into a devil’s den and a cause of nuisance for the colony. The government should take this issue seriously as making of these parks is not enough rather proper maintenance is also required.
