With more of humankind moving and living in urban places, we are spending most of their time indoors getting little exposure to sunlight and fresh air. Public parks are the lung spaces that every city needs, they provide a bit of greenery amidst concrete jungles. Surprisingly, Chennai Corporation has been renovating many of the parks, especially those that were temporarily swallowed by Chennai Metro train work. Lucky that a park close to my house got renovated some time ago – it’s the Ashok Nagar Park near Ashok Pillar, Chennai. This park has a walking track with a pebbled flooring for acupressure effect, an exercise gym area and a small play area for kids too.
