Aarohan’s proposal of erecting a first ever, interactive public library gave them the perfect opportunity to do something meaningful. In 2018, an innovative, interactive public library was set up at the park – managed and run by Aarohan. The library provided children and young people a safe and stimulating space to satisfy their curiosity, learn new concepts in a fun way and express their creativity.

Every weekend, Aarohan runs a busy calendar of activities for children of different age groups. The focus is on developing extra-curricular skills of children and thereby providing them with a holistic growth.

Some of the activities include:

Sketching, Drawing & Coloring Sessions
> Story Telling
> Dance Classes
> Music Classes
> Photography
> Sports Activity
> Film Screening
