Riverfront Park: Khanpur
The linear park extends between Gandhi Bridge and Nehru Bridge on the eastern riverbank and is planned with secure play areas for children, walking, jogging and other recreational facilities, and areas for outdoor performances and concerts.
This area, prior to the riverfront project, was lined with private hotels and other development. The riverbed was occupied with slums and adjoining areas were low-lying, vulnerable to flooding. Land reclamation in this part has provided the opportunity to reduce the risk of flooding, and create land to develop a public park that can serve the dense neighborhoods. The slum households in this area have been relocated to newly constructed housing within city limits.
