I absolutely loved visiting the Eco park in Kolkata during my visit in 2019. The park is built on 480 acres of land and is surrounded by 104 acres of water with an island in the middle.
The park has different zones, from the wetlaands, urban forests, themed gardens, and recreational areas to the replicas of the "Seven Wonders Of The World'.
Although the replicas weren't quite life-size, they were still pretty huge, towering over the treelines. The beauty of them all was the details were identical to the original and you can actually walk inside to have a good look around. I've been lucky enough to see 6 of the 7 wonders for real, but the visit to this Eco park had a different perspective. The clue is in the name.
It was fascinating to see. Parts of the park isn't finished yet, but I'm looking forward to visiting again when all the areas are open.
I visited the park with two of my cousins. We took a buggy ride all the way to the top of the park and then we waked back through the different zones, it took hours and we still couldn't finish seeing everything that was already open to the public. I particularly loved walking through the mist garden. Every are highlights the beauty of planet Earth and comes with a message of sustainability. From the wild flower meadows, bamboo garden, tropical and bonsai gardens to tea and butterfly gardens, it really is beautiful place as well as being an educational park for different generations. It also houses creative artisans from across the industries and across the state of West Bengal, where each artisan can exhibit and sell their products and services to every visitor who enters the park. It's a huge amount of exposure for creative poeple.
