Kolkata: PS Group, one of Kolkata’s esteemed real estate conglomerates with a legacy of over three decades, proudly announced its latest initiative to rejuvenate and restore the beloved Nature Study Park by Kolkata Municipal Corporation on Loudon Street. This special initiative, open to the public, signifies PS Group’s commitment to preserving nature and fostering community-environment relationships.

Embracing Nature and making it an integral part of lifestyle has always been at the forefront at PS Group. Plantation of more than 10 lac trees and shrubs, restoration of over 125 matured trees and 8 large water bodies over the past 5 years are some testimonies to the Group’s Environmental consciousness. The Group has completed over 6 million square feet of IGBC accredited green projects in the last 5 years with a commitment for only green developments in future.

The Nature Study Park, adopted by PS Group, is a cherished open space at the heart of Kolkata, known for its scenic beauty and natural pond. It has long been a favorite destination for local residents seeking morning tranquility and leisurely evening strolls.

The park’s revitalization project was undertaken with the aim of enhancing visitor experiences while preserving its natural charm.  The transformation of Nature Study Park is a testament to PS Group’s multifaceted approach. The project aimed to reorganize park components, introduce exciting attractions, and, most importantly, incorporate elements of education centered around ‘Nature Study.’ This educational aspect began with an extensive identification of plant species, now complemented by informative signage.

The park proudly presents an ‘outdoor public library,’ constructed from recycled materials by ILead, an ‘outdoor fitness zone,’ a children’s play area, floor games for toddlers like Hopscotch, viewing decks, reflexology courts, and trellis walkways.  Over 18,500 new plants have been meticulously planted to enhance the park’s lush greenery, ensuring a serene environment for visitors. Furthermore, the installation of 16 3.3 KMP hybrid SPV power plants guarantees that the park remains beautifully illuminated even after sunset. 

Another remarkable feature of the park is the transformation of the deteriorating concrete waterfront into a nature-friendly wooden pile embankment. This not only breathed new life into the pond but also allowed it to reconnect with the surrounding earth. The newly established soft pond edge has been thoughtfully adorned with a diverse range of littoral and sub-littoral plant species, enhancing the vitality of aquatic life. Additionally, a captivating aeration fountain, aimed at improving water quality, has become a central point of attraction for visitors.
