With the broken benches, dead trees, damaged play area for the children, the Chicalim Joggers park crying for attention and needs a Midas touch. After 6 years of its inception, the condition of this park has taken enough beating from the nature. This park got neglected for two years during the Covid19 pandemic time when the whole state was going through financial crunch and trauma caused by the Covid19. At present the benches in this park area broken, the play area surface at the children play area is damaged. The trees and plants from this garden are half dead due to the poor maintenance. Congress leader Viriato Fernandes from Dabolim, he said that it looks like there is scam behind this joggers park. The park which was built few years back is in poor condition and neglected by the authorities. He also questioned how the local panchayat will look after the maintenance of this park when the panchayat doesn’t. have funds with it.
