Nageswara Rao Park in Luz is now open till 10 a.m. It used to be open to the public only till 9 a.m. till last weekend. The gates open at 6 a.m.
This extension has been made possible by the MLA after seniors whom he met at the park recently made this request, saying they preferred to come to the park after 8 or 9 am and walk when there were less people around.
The MLA says he spoke to the Parks Department officer of GCC and got the morning timings extended. However, the evening timings cannot be changed for now, the MLA says.
