There are two small and one big parks in this area. All the parks have open gyms and children’s toys installed in all the places as people come in large numbers to exercise and walk in the morning and evening. During the day there are security guards in all the parks, but at night there is a single security guard patrolling all the three parks. Residents have complained that youngsters host parties in two small parks during night time. Following the suicide case, residents are hoping that the security guards will be increased.
