As parties quarreled over the efficacy of odd-even in Delhi, Gurugram went ahead and inaugurated NCR’s first ever oxygen chamber.
Situated adjacent to Huda City Centre – one of the busiest and most polluted areas in Gurugram – the beautiful garden houses over hundreds of anti-polluting plants that can aid towards mitigating air toxicity.
The green zone is a joint effort by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation and Nurturing Green, an NCR-based company.
The chamber, sprawled across a 13,000 sq feet area, also comprises of a nursery and a greenhouse that sell plants. The place is segmented into three zones – nursery, greenhouse, and an outside area. There is a dedicated oxygen room when people can spend time.
There is no visiting fee and visitors can shop for anti-polluting plants such as areca palm, aloe vera, and sansperia.
Gurgaon residents are surprised to finally find a place where they can breathe fresh, clean air. A resident of Sector 56 told The Times of India, “It’s such a serene place and the best part is that it is not at some desolate spot. What I really liked was that it is a combination of a nursery and a park – combining the best of both.”
Well done, Gurugram!
