Children crave for an open space to play which has become scarce in this rapid growing urbanization and they too are curbed from playing in the parks as elders too need the parks for walk and talk

This is a very common story across the city and Sector-15A was no different, but the outlook and desire of Manbir Kaur & PP Singh CEO and Founder of I Love My City changed the situation

There was an open un-used land of 1.35 acres inside the sector which was an eye sore, dumping ground and used for cattle rearing.

Residents surrounding that area had attempted to clean it but felt helpless.

Manbir Kaur & PP Singh CEO and Founder of I Love My City decided to convert this barren piece of land to a “Place to Play.

The journey started with cleaning of the area from malba and wild bushes, labourer were hired to do this activity. One of the member of I Love My City Mr. Navneet Gumber provided with fresh soft soil (brown mitti)for layering the ground. Neighbours joined in the cause and it became a community project. One of the neighbour who is Badminton coach gave his inputs for making the court

The results were remarkable and welcome by whole community irrespective of their age, I Love My City is planning to provide lights and convert the whole area in a Sports Complex which will be unique milestone and inspiration to many
