Pony Ride in Eco Park?

Yesterday, I spotted a cute pony cart outside the Banglar Hat entry of Eco Park. I learnt after talking to the owner that he stays in Dum Dum, that he is doing this to feed his old time horses that have become almost like family to him. He said that he had been trying to get riders in different areas near Dum Dum when a rickshawallah asked him to try Eco Park where lots of people were visiting. I asked Partha Ghosh, our new Curator of Eco Park, to try and see if some arrangement could be worked out for pony rides in the service road of Eco Park. A photo:

Last Saturday morning, we released fish seedlings in various water bodies to control mosquito menace. A photo:

  1. Pony Ride is good idea as fun ride. It needs to be beautified. Price and path needs to be regulated.

  2. Mr. Sen,

    How about using this PONY RIDE also inside ECO PARK at reasonable price for ride.

    It would add to the fun element and help people view a larger area as the park is quite big and will be a good tourist attraction for kids.

  3. Yes, it would be great to introduce pony ride for kids inside the Eco-park. And it is eco-friendly too !
