The Urban Park will come up on a vacant land measuring 9 acres, next to football stadium in Sector 17. It will be developed at the cost of Rs 9 crore.

Mukesh Anand, UT chief engineer, said they will allot the work within a week, and it will begin in the last week of May.

The idea was to attract more residents and tourists to Sector 17 where they could enjoy recreational activities, Anand said.

The park will have food courts with landscaping, besides cycle tracks, parking, LED lighting. The original architecture will be conserved.

The park will also have games for children and a walking track inside.
