Mist Garden in Rain Forest

Trees in the three acre rain forest of Eco Park are fairly high now. Lot of visitors go there in the central Adda Zone plaza. In this hot summer,we are now planning to have a Mist Garden there.There will be a series of sprouts from poles that will have sprayers instead of street lights. Compressed air and fine water spray from the nozzles will produce a fog (think of a walk on Darjeeling Mall ring road) that will produce a soothing fun cooling effect without getting you wet. Work has just begun and I am told that it will be ready in a month or so.
Hon'ble Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee took a walk in Eco Park yesterday evening. In course of the walk, I showed her the site where work on Mist Garden was going on.
