The Hanuman Nagar Circle in Belgaum city has got a facelift. It now boasts of ornamental plants, grass carpet, benches and coloured lights.
The circle, situated in a locality with residences of mostly government officials, pensioners and political leaders, was recently given a facelift at a cost of Rs. 12 lakh.
There is also a cascade in the circle, a first in a circle in the city.
The project was conceptualised, planned, designed and executed by Commissioner of the Belgaum City Corporation S.G. Patil, social activist Ashok Chandargi and artist R.K. Godwani. Mr. Patil's experience during his association with the Upper Krishna Project, under which a beautiful garden was developed at Alamatti, came handy in converting this concrete circle into a beautiful “mini-garden”.
A gardener has also been employed to maintain the circle. The embellished circle is already attracting people of all ages.
