Mumbai’s first urban forest blooms at Wadala’s Bhakti Park | Mumbai News – Times of India

MUMBAI: The city’s first park to have an urban forest has taken root. The 57,000 trees planted in this urban forest in Bhakti Park using the Miyawaki concept are flourishing fast, BMC officials said.
Bhakti Park, known as the largest park in the eastern suburbs, has also developed a scope with 12 zodiac signs and 27 constellations.

For the last one and a half years, an innovative project to develop Miyawaki forests based on the Japanese concept of having more and more trees in less space has been implemented to enrich the green spaces in the city. It was started from Bhakti Park on January 26, 2020.
“The total area of the park is 98,369 square meters. This land is divided into two parts. Out of which, the park has been developed on an area of 58,000 square meters. The playground has been developed on the remaining 40,000 square meters area,” said superintendent of gardens Jitendra Pardeshi.
