The park is well secured with 360 degree fencing. Will be interesting to see for how many years (or months?) forest department is able to maintain the fencing..Well Fenced Garden - Aamra Van at Nana Pondha Dharampur Valsad Gujarat 9

      Yeah, the usual story.

      Sadly, most of the government projects die because of non-maintenance. ๐Ÿ™
