Winters are for Picnics in Bengal. New Town has a fair number of spots designed for picnics, at a very reasonable rate. You just have to book in advance. The five spots are:
1-3: Picnic spots near Upasanasthal, on the bank of a water-way, amidst green lawns / trees. Pay-n-Use Toilets are there, along with kitchen / dining sheds. Close to Tata Medical Centre, opposite bank of Tall Tree Nursery
4-5. Picnic spots at Eco Urban Village with kitchen/dining sheds, huge water body, boating available on request, angling permitted on purchase of ticket, car parking available, four day cottages (see pic above), migratory birds, pay-n-use toilet and a beautiful central akhra for adda (designed by Rupchand Kundu).
With the success of the Puja Parikrama by members of Swapna Bhor (Seniors' Park), we have arranged / planned for a picnic for the members on first week of January to Taki. A bus will be provided by Hidco but all costs including fuel, food etc will be equally shared by members who opt to go. A similar model was followed for the Puja Bhraman with a great deal of success: many members were effusively narrating their experiences to me after the event.
