Chennai: The Chennai Corporation will renovate Panagal Park in T. Nagar at the cost of Rs.1.2 crore.

The park, which covers eight acres, is to have three entry points.

Fountains, small ponds, children’s play areas, walkways and landscaped lawns would be some of the features of the park.

The park’s lush greenery has become more visible in the last few months after the Corporation removed unauthorised hoardings around it.

Last year, the civic body created new parks and renovated old ones including Nesapakkam park, Turnbulls Road park, Haddows Road park and a park opposite the Valluvar Kottam. Natesan park and Anna Nagar Tower park are being renovated now.

Lakshmi and Sujitha, students of environmental science at Anna University, have been visiting the old parks in the city to study the natural ecosystem.

The parks are home to a plenty of birdlife and need to be protected, said Ms Sujitha.

They have spotted moorhens, which are aquatic birds, in the Tower Park and urged the Corporation to clean the pond and fence it off to let fish thrive.
