The News Minute quoted Rajendra Kumar, an official with the Urban Biodiversity Wing of the GHMC as saying, "Pet parks are common in foreign countries, but in India, we do not have any such facility and pets are usually not allowed into regular parks. We built the park on a dump yard that was lying barren and the entire set up took around 6 months to build. There is an entry ticket fee for both dogs and visitors to the park." The park also has a dog training centre where professionals would train the pets. Dog splash pool, dog play area, para-vet clinic are all part of the park.
