BMC has decided to revamp a garden in Agripada Byculla with the intent to create a space where mothers can come with their babies, officials said.

According to officials, the existing garden is in poor shape. The revamp will include a separate room for breastfeeding mothers, a play area for children, an open-air gym, a yoga space, decorative lights and information board, said officials from the Garden Cell department. Pathways and a toilet will also be constructed.

“The idea is to attract women who have babies in this garden,” said an official.

The estimated cost for revamp of the garden is Rs 2.49 crore and it will take 11 months to complete. Work is expected to start by September end after a contractor is finalised.
