City dwellers happy with amenities in Fazle Rabbi Park

Shahariar Islam Sovon :
People have been able to use Shahid Dr Fazle Rabbi Park in Gulshan-1 of the capital – a green open space vital for morning walk in particular in the country’s diplomatic zone.

Shahid Dr. Fazle Rabbi Park was established devoid of a formal blueprint.

The Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) made steps to update and improve the park’s aesthetic appeal.

On February 1, 2024, Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Atiqul Islam officialy opened the Dr. Fazle Rabbi Park.

The park has smooth and beautiful walking paths, canopies, sitting benches, earthen mounds, green walls, children’s play facilities, free-hand exercise facilities, water absorption channels and proper drainage systems.

In addition, there is open space and seating adjacent to the footpath, car drop-off and cycle parking and transparent soundproof walls. Rain gardens, reservoirs and bridges add new dimensions to the park.

Visitors are appreciating the transparent noise barrier installed in the park. Visitors claimed to The New Nation that the capital’s main road and alleyways are quite noisy.

This is becoming one of the things that irritate people.


For those who would rather have a little peace and quiet, this park could be ideal. The sound of car horns, noise, or disturbance cannot be heard here because of the clear noise barrier.

Under the supervision of Dhaka North City, the modernization of the park has been done by the Department of Architecture of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.

The project was led by BUET Professor SM Najmul Imam.

He told that, as per the rules, this high level of noise pollution is not acceptable to the users of this park which is considered as a ‘silent area’. Besides, it is important to reduce this noise pollution for the normal life of birds, small animals and insects in the park. Urban Park is supposed to be a place of tranquility for tired and polluted city dwellers.

Therefore, as per the national regulations, it is decided mto use transparent noise barrier to reduce the level of noise pollution and keep the scenery unobstructed.

Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Atiqul Islam told The New Nation that Fazle Rabbi Park is a modern exceptional park.

A beautiful transparent noise barrier imported from Germany has been provided around this park to prevent noise pollution.

As a result, there will be fifty percent less noise inside the park than outside.
