Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) has developed eco-friendly Janeshwar Mishra Park (JMP) in the heart of the city. It has been conceptualised and designed as a multi-functional environmental and recreational green which will not just provide sustainable habitat for various species of birds but also double up as a major entertainment and recreation centre for all sections of the society.
The site can be accessed from four different directions and therefore four separate entries in North and South-East direction are located at suitable points. The site is also bound by a 45m Row Bund road on the River side with embankment. The site can always be accessed by private modes such as cars and two wheelers but not many public transport options such as buses are available for the members of the public.
A series of cycling, jogging and walkways are built in the park. The total length of such track/s are 5.28 km., 8.85 km. and 10.5 km. respectively. The system of jogging tracks, cycling tracks and pedestrian paths has been identified in the ratio of 2:3:4. These facilities are barrier free for disabled and old aged members of the society.
