Simpson Park, Hazaribagh Gets A New Tourist Spot

Entrance of Simpson Park

The 163 years old British-era Simpson pond in Hazaribagh has now got a complete makeover. It now has an amusement park, cafeteria, sitting areas, seasonal flower beds and a lot more.

The pond was constructed in the year 1856 by Captain Simpson, a British Deputy Commissioner, who then planted many Palm trees near it as a plantation drive and converted the area into a beautiful lush green landscape.

The place soon became a tourist attraction for its greenery and scenic beauty and people named it after the captain. However, it remained unmaintained for long and later turned into a dump yard until recently when it was renovated.

On Sunday, June 14, the park was inaugurated and was presented as a gift to the people during the pandemic. The park is located in the Ranchi-Patna Highway, opposite to the Rotary House, which was supposed to be the official residence of Captain Simpson.
