NAVI MUMBAI: The civic body has decided to fix music systems in city gardens.
The concept often seen in theme parks is now being introduced in public gardens that are frequented by morning walkers and joggers.
The garden opposite Sanpada’s Moraj circle is one such spot that NMMC intends to install the facility.
NMMC has estimated the cost of the project at around Rs 47 lakh, which will include installing of sound systems, amplifiers and cabling.
“The concept was always there but not implemented to a great extent. The idea is to play soothing music in the mornings and evenings when residents visits the gardens. Theme parks like Wonders Park or Rock garden has such facilities but in the public garden it’s relatively new,” said the official.
Based on the response and demand from the residents the concept will be implemented in other gardens as well.
“Until the system is not misused, it shouldn’t be creating a problem. Ideally, it’s better to not have such an addition as most coming to the garden have a mobile handset or I pods loaded with music of their choice. We will have to wait and watch how much the system is going to be useful,” said Sanpada resident Riddhi Ojha who frequently visits one of the city gardens.
