Its in first floor of that complex with good space. As discussed with Marry brown people, They targeted Bank employees around Simmakal area, and Shoppers of Simakkal, North & West Masi streets, Good shed street. As its surrounded by many Electronic shops, Hardware & house hold need shops.

Decent Patronage on second day when I went there. Good choice of location, As no Major restaurant in that surroundings except Bell restaurant, Dindigul Biriyani shop at Thamizh sangam road.

On my personal view, it might be a huge hit if it is opened somewhere near Junction of East & North Masi street (Near Pothys, Bhima, Jos Alukkas) or Junction of Nethaji road and North Masi street (Near Arya bhavan, GRT, Joy Alukkas). As these areas always crowded with Shoppers and foreign tourists. Added, no Major choice of restaurants available in that location except Murugan Idly kadai or Arya bhavan.

As Sundar sir said, Parking is some what difficult especially for those who comes in car. But no doubt its a better place for hang out where we can relax and enjoy eating escaping crowd and amidst shopping.

Ground floor of that Complex is going to be occupied by Samsung showroom.

Madurai Corporation ECO part Thiruparankundram. One of the Hang out destination for South Madurai people.

Really a well planned peaceful, pleasant, pollution free environment at foothills of TPK with spacious parking, people spending nice time with their family, youths having get together, tourists relaxing, Children enjoying in their play area, Musical fountain. Photographers taking snaps of newly married couples with different postures in different location treating them as Kollywood hero, heroine...(Really funny to see it :D ....).

Entrance Ticket for Adult costs Rs. 20 & Rs. 10 for Children.

All together good initiative by Madurai Corporation, But access to people around Thirunagar, GST road will be difficult till ROB construction at both entrance of TPK completed.

Lets walk around ECO park…

This year, in a novel effort, the trade fair organisers have erected a replica of the Egyptian pyramid at a cost of Rs. 30 lakh. The guests watched a special 3D show on ancient Egyptian culture during the inauguration.
