(4.3/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
Janeshwar Mishra Park is an urban park operating in Gomti Nagar in Lucknow, India.It was made in memory of late politician Janeshwar Mishra from Samajwadi Party.The park was inaugurated for general public of the city on 5 August 2014. It is claimed to be Asia's largest garden.HistoryThe chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav (session 2012-2017) laid the foundation stone of the park on 6 August 2012. The park was a dream project of SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav who had asked his son and UP CM Akhilesh Yadav to dedicate a park in the name of Janeshwar Mishra. It was developed with a cost of 168 crores($276,026,668). The park was modeled with Hyde Park in London as an inspiration.BackgroundLucknow Development Authority has developed eco-friendly Janeshwar Mishra Park in the heart of the city. It has been conceptualised and designed as a multi-functional environmental and recreational green which will not just provide sustainable habitat for various species of birds but also double up as a major entertainment and recreation centre for all sections of the society. It will enhance and improve the ecological balance and help restore sensitive habitat for numerous species of birds, small animals, fishes, amphibians and even insects. The design direction for the park is centered on the strategy for sustainable development that aims to promote harmony among human beings and between humanity and nature. The pursuit of sustainable development requires a social system that provides for solutions for the tensions arising from disharmonious development. The site has a gentle and general slope towards south to north and greater gradient towards eastern and western sides where it will house water bodies. As per Lucknow Master Plan, the site falls in green belt and was visualized as a city forest. However, due to manifold reasons the site is now proposed to be developed a park to meet the social and recreational needs of the neighbouring population. However, whilst permitting the change from city forest to landscaped park.

  • The best ever Park. The synthetic Jogging Track is a wonderful addition to this Park. The lake, the cycle Track and greenery makes the visit an unforgettable experience. Cleanliness needs to be maintained and drinking water points need to be increased. Some mischievous elements are peeling off synthetic Jogging Track and it has not been repaired. Also, motor cycles and vehicles should be strictly prohibited inside Park. Have seen motor cycles on synthetic Jogging Track. More enforcement needed to deter unruly elements.
  • Neat and clean. Lot of greenery. Activity area for kids. Fresh air. Easily accessible.
  • One of the most beautiful natural park in India.. it includes lake, hills, springs, green ground with beautiful flowers and plants.. you can describe in one word that is AWESOME..
  • Still work in progress. Not very kid safe with deep waterbodies which have badly designed railings that won't hold young kids from falling in. Lots of uncovered drains/sewers. Also, the major tracks have speeding two wheelers and cars as well... not sure why they are being allowed inside a park.
  • Great jogging track and a huge park. The jogging track is cushioned so you feel like you're wearing really good shoes when you walk/jog/run on it. It has an open gym as well!
