The Telangana government has started a program called “Koti Vruksharchana” to plant one crore saplings in the state. The program was officially launched by MP Santhosh Kumar, along with Ministers Indrakaran Reddy, Sabita Indra Reddy, and Patnam Mahender Reddy, in the Manchirevus of Moinabad Mandal, Rangareddy District. They planted the first saplings in the Forestrek Park, which was also inaugurated by the MP and the ministers. Many other important people, including MP Ranjith Reddy, MLC Vanidevi, Chief Secretary Shanti Kumari, and MLAs, also participated in the event.
The Manchirevu area used to have a lot of construction waste and a bad smell, but it has now been transformed into the Forestrek Park, a great place for people who love nature. The Forest Department and the Telangana Forest Development Corporation (TSFDC) worked together to develop this 256-acre park.
The park has many facilities for visitors to enjoy, such as a drinking water plant, toilet block, watchtower, village deity temple, open gymnasium, walking track, rock paintings, trekking amphitheater, waterfall, balancing stones, baby elephant, eagle face, rocking stones, and sitting benches. The watchtower is specifically designed for people to enjoy the view of Hyderabad’s skyline.
The Forestrek Park is expected to make around Rs. 3 lakhs in monthly income and provide employment to 11 people on an outsourcing basis. It is predicted that the park will attract hundreds of visitors every day, with up to 2,000 people visiting on Sundays for trekking activities.
