I believe it has free entry in green park...but actual park is closed only side small one is open... i went there and i was meet by a very rude Guard...I was wanting to slap him but he talk to me ver (Read More)y rudly...and said ...... "kya aadmi ho kaha se aaye ho....park ddekha hai kabhi....! Is this the behaviour towards to own fellow city member...! It is a beautiful place i understand the security concern also youth needs to understand it is a practice park not a lovers point as many don't understand the decency of the people and staff who are managing the place and keeping it neat and clean. It is from both side but it could be regulated as many young players come there to practice in morning sessions..but this behaviour is so stupid...some one need to fire that guy or give him ultimatum. Also i don;t understand why kanpur government don't open these as a tourist attraction... also a place called 'Lal Imli'...I went there and police men were sitting there..didn't allowed me to go inside.. i understand the concern...but can't government open and maintain the old machine and open it a tourist attraction...this whole civil lines, maal road, pared road looks more like a overly protected military zone than a normal city. ~namaste~
