Notably, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has undertaken the construction of Swami Vivekananda Memorial project at the site adding another attraction of beauty and greenery to the spot.

The civil works, including construction of an island shape platform, are almost complete.

The ambitious project was taken up by former Standing Committee Chairman Dayashankar Tiwari, who incidentally was present when the gigantic crane placed the statue of Swami Vivekanand on the pedestal. Leader of Opposition in NMC Vikas Thakre and other dignitaries were also present on the occasion.
