Review of Urja Park:

What a pleasant place in the middle of Patna! Urja Park in Patna has brought a new lease of life to Patel Nagar. The entire plot of land was primarily a dump yard, lying vacant for years. Under the initiative of the Bihar State Electricity Board, it has now been transformed into one of the most well maintained parks in Patna. It has high aesthetic value, all facilities, and is easily accessible for residents staying nearby.

Who would even know that a park with such a huge lake even exists right in a residential area? Built and maintained by Bihar State Power Holding Company Limited (BSPHCL), formerly known as BSEB, the place is worth a visit if you are in Patna.

Lush greens, benches, gazebos, skating rink, Kids’ play area and ample parking. There are a variety of seating spaces and brick structures, state-of-the-art landscaping including an amphitheatre. One can find nuggets of information on electricity throughout the park.

Except for the narrow junction at the access road, there is no particular flaw i could find. Wow, what a near-perfect park!

Closeby, you can also find Navin Sinha Smriti Park built on similar lines, but i guess it does not have such a huge lake. Even in the middle of the day, i could find a lot of people with families relaxing here.

The ticket price was low (Rs. 50/-), and the park is superbly well-maintained. It has modern and innovative features like open gym equipments, sufficient parking and is also safe for usage at night. The lights in the park are solar-powered.

You can also find some good street food hawkers just outside the entrance gate.

For the uninitiated, this park is close to DAV BSEB, and the newly opened restaurant Lounge Before Wicket (LBW).”
