The park built by the Kerala Tourism Department at a cost of ₹2.80 crore, is a memorial to Vagbhatananda, a renaissance leader in Uralungal.
It consists of statues, open stage, badminton court, open gymnasium, and children’s park, besides small huts along the way, for rest. There are seating corners beneath the trees. Toilets have been designed to accommodate the differently abled as well.
Ever since its inauguration by Kerala Tourism Minister Kadakampalli Surendran this Tuesday, 5th January, netizens have been sharing the pics with praises for the state-of-the-art project.

For a second, I thought it was some remote village in the Scandinavian. Hopefully I will get to visit this place someday! https://t.co/QV7tGVJouI— Rohan Bhowmick (@militant_monk_) January 6, 2021
