Green Space


Park Attendant

There is plenty of green but not much space in Dhaka. It’s a mega city with over 12 million people. Gridlock and noise pollution- the kind unimaginable and difficult to show in photographs- plague the city. In the morning I normally cross the gate and wander through Kalachandpur- the “real” Bangladesh packed with people but today I went the other direction and strolled around Baridhara Park. It’s the Gramacey Park of Dhaka. There is even a small play structure for children. Many locals from the neighborhood power walk around the park for their morning exercise.
