A ground-hugging landscaped open space by Newarch retains the cultural and spatial value of inhabitants of the place. The recreation space resembles a Wadi (a tree plantation area-an orchard). The plantation is layered with ornamental shrubbery followed by fruit trees and then towering Areca catechu.
Tucked alongside, are featured walls of varying heights, perforations, vibrant colors, and animal graffiti symbolizing the ‘eclectic’ movement.
