Howrah is an ancient city, which came into existence before the birth of Kolkata (formerly Calcutta). Since the British Regime, the city grew and expanded. The beautiful picturesque Belilious Park was created by its master I.R. Belilious. Due to uncontrolled manifold, growth of population, the city stated losing all its glory and the park gradually lost its natural beauty. Washermen became busy using the water of the beautiful lake washing dirty clothes, the greenery turned into a dumping yard, swains gazed all around making a filthy polluted environment.
To save the park from its decay and destruction, Howrah Municipal Corporation took an ambitious project of development and beautification of it in the year 2005. The project plan prepared by Howrah Municipal Corporation was finally accepted by the Green Bench of High Court, Calcutta for immediate implementation.
Tender was floated by Howrah Municipal Corporation for the said work when Panchdeep Constructions Ltd. became the highest bidder. Eventually, the development and beautification of Belilious Park was awarded to Panchdeep Constructions Ltd. by Howrah Municipal Corporation.
The Belilious Park on 26 acres of land is now dressed up in a superb natural surrounding for leisure, pleasure, fun and entertainment for all. The magnificent landscape, picturesque garden spotted with attractive unique ‘RIDES’ (Free-fall, Parachute Rides to the Tiny Toy Train), lovely lake, sprawling playground, jogging tracks for young and elderly, open air theatre, shopping arena and many more, awaiting to greet us all with its warmth and comfort. That sums up with Belilious Park team led by its Chairman & Managing Director Mr. Ram Ratan Chowdhary.
It is a most modern garden with facilities like Boating in the lake, strolling along the green grass, carpet-soft pathways for spending lazy time.
