The Wazirabad Bundh Revitalization project, a citizen driven initiative led by a local NGO, along with the state forest department and corporate sponsors, was aimed at rebuilding a derelict and inaccessible strip in the city, to transform and rejuvenate into a vibrant urban space.
The 5.2Km long stretch of the Bundh, historically formed a check dam in a water collection system. The Bundh and canal alongside was a sad state of misuse.
The Design proposal has transformed the Bundh to create a barrier-free, Ecological network in the form of a linear nature park, with walking and and cycling tracks forming a non-motorized, environment-friendly linkage across the city.
The Revitalization of the forest corridor contributed to energize the urban landscape, creating a 'green lung' for Gurugram and, providing a public space in a natural setting for leisure and community activities.
