There was a time when this park was used for conducting sports activities; it was sometimes used for political events over time.
There have been speeches by many politicians at the park, including former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Bajpai, to present Prime Minister Narendra Modi.Apart from this, many grand demonstrations were held at the park, for which ponds were constructed at the park. Due to these reasons the condition of the park was deteriorating. But some conscious citizens paid attention to this, which led to the high court ordering the ban on public events in the park about three years ago.The beautification of the park is being done at a rapid pace. In the British period, the land was donated by Kasturchand Daga, hence the park has been named “Kasturchand Park”.
