In an effort to make the national capital-Delhi, a heritage tourist spot, The Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTDC) in collaboration with the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has opened Every Other Day (EOD), the city’s largest adventure park. Delhi Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra said-‘Our aim is to build a national capital as an international tourist spot. Thus, more adventure park will be launched in the national capital in the upcoming year.’ The park is running parallel to the Sanjay Lake of Mayur Vihar located at West Delhi and spread across 6.3 acres. The lake originally was meant to attract migratory birds and a home for many indigenous trees.
Be it children, adults or the senior citizens as well, E.O.D has some or the other thing to offer to all. The park offers milder, yet equally exciting adventure activities such as tree-house course, archery, beach volleyball, Spiderman’s nest, battleground, monkey way, lion’s den and many more, with separate sections dedicated to both kids and adults. The lake is being utilized for raft rides. Water-based games and boating in the lake have also been proposed. While the Mickey Mouse house has a tunnel-like subway that symbolizes a rat hole, another section offers an experience comparable to the mythological Laxman jhula. The list of proposed activities includes inflatable rock climbing, dismantable tented accommodation, mountain biking, dirt track, paintball, archery, bungee jumping, rifle shooting, zorbing, flying fox and commando net etc.
The adventure park will have day and overnight camping facilities too. DDA has been asked to clean up and maintain Sanjay Lake. The adventure park will also offer visitors a restaurant block spread over an area of 119 square meters. This includes a sitting area, pantry, stores, kiosks and public utilities. Since the park has been designed keeping the nature lovers in mind, EOD also boasts of an array of lawns. For those who prefer to walk it out, asidewalk has been built on the lake front. In order to beautify the place, around 100 trees have been planted and thus, the park will surely act as a breather for the residents as well.
