Parks and Gardens in Chennai

Chennai, a metropolis situated at the southern part of India, was, like all other metro cities, a jungle of concrete and steel with a few parks here and there. But the increasing GHG emission and environmental pollution through dust and smoke compelled the authorities of Chennai to think otherwise and plan as far as possible to create greenery inside the concrete jungle. This resulted in the materialization of a modern city having lot of breathing space and well planned expanse of green meticulously planned and distributed all across.

Thanks to the authorities that they have come up with plans to beautify Chennai through plantation and development of parks and gardens. The parks and gardens not only beautify the Chennai city but also maintain ecological balance through open spaces and green plants.

Without these jewels a metropolis looks bare and mechanical. Though there are ample scope of development we can only be proud of this new look of Chennai.
