A breathing space in Dhalpur

DSCC opens Outfall Staff Quarter Park

With a much-needed playground, walkway and a rooftop garden, “Outfall Staff Quarter Park” was inaugurated yesterday in the city’s Dhalpur area to provide a new green space to residents.

Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sayeed Khokon inaugurated the park. DSCC built it on a 12-katha land, with an estimated cost of Tk 3 crore.

The park also has a library and hall room for people to rest and recuperate after a walk.

“We are modernising 19 parks and 12 playgrounds in the city. Including this one, we have already opened a few of them,” said Mayor Khokon at the inaugural event.

The mayor also inaugurated a 90-flat staff (garbage management) quarter building in the area, constructed at the cost of Tk 17 crore.

All the flats have separate electric connections, solar and sewerage system and power substation, he said.
