Bengaluru: Karnataka's first multi-purpose vintage ‘Car Park’ is all set to be launched in Bengaluru's Bommanahalli on February 27. The park includes an amphitheatre, static display of vintage cars and a sandpit for children to play.

Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru, Bommanahalli BBMP corporator Satish Reddy said that he wanted to provide something unique to the residents of Bomanahalli in the space which was earlier vacant and unused. Car Park is an initiative taken by Bommanahalli BBMP corporator Ram Mohan Raju.

The corporation had an idea to set up a ‘stone park’ with several and unique stone sculptures in place which was earlier used as a dump yard, but the ‘stone park’ idea took a ‘vintage car’ turn and made into the lot. Mohan also said it was possible with the help of former union minister, Late Ananth Kumar and Bommanahalli legislator Satish Reddy.

The purpose behind the vintage Car Park was to provide a place for children where they could ditch their mobile phones and involve themselves in physical activities and concentrate more on the healthy living. The idea behind the amphitheatre is to provide a platform for children to showcase their talents.

The unique Car Park will be inaugurated by former deputy chief minister R Ashok, BBMP Mayor Gangambike Mallikarjun and Bommanahalli legislator Satish Reddy. Many other members from the Congress party too are expected to take part in the inauguration on February 27.
