Entry of vehicles restricted at Jubilee Park


Jamshedpur, Nov. 26: Both the entry as well as exit gates of the Jubilee Park will close by 8.00 p.m. (Monday to Saturday) prohibiting all vehicular and public movement from 8.00 pm onwards inside the park.

The decision has reportedly been taken in view of rising cases of accidents due to rash driving, especially in late evenings, and movement of anti-social elements inside the famous park.

The latest decision by the utilities service providing company Jusco also prevents all vehicle movement inside the iconic Jubilee Park on Sundays for the convenience of visitors inside the park.

No vehicles will also be allowed on the road passing near the JN Tata statue, the Mughal Gardens, Children Park and the Nicco Amusement Park inside Jubilee Park at any time of the day.

A Jusco official said Jubilee Park is one of the rare parks in the country where vehicle movement is allowed inside the park. However, in recent times, the park has been witnessing a lot of accidents due to rash driving, especially in late evening. In addition, there has been a rise in movement of anti-social elements in the park disturbing the peace and tranquility in the region.

“Use of loud music, burning of crackers, etc, which cause disturbance to animals in the zoo, has already been stopped within the Jubilee Park. In order to further improve ecological, security and socio-cultural framework within the park, Jusco has decided to introduce additional changes in day-to-day operations of the park from December 1,” the official said.

Moreover, no new bookings for picnic or functions inside the park, like zoo picnic spot and all the parks and gardens picnic spots will be allowed from December 1. However the bookings made earlier to this decision will be entertained.

He said the park, which also has the famous Mughal Garden and fountains, Nicco Amusement Park and the Tata Steel zoo, has been playing a significant role in facilitating leisure activities for the citizens of the steel city and, at the same time, acting as a health centre for morning walkers.

A gift to the citizens of Jamshedpur by Tata Steel on the occasion of its golden jubilee in 1958, the 237.75- acre jubilee park, modeled after Brindavan Gardens in Mysore, is considered to be the green heart of the city. Its breathtakingly beautiful Mogul Garden with its colouful fountains attracts hundreds of visitors every evening, while the naturally contoured lake area is a popular picnic spot.
