Due to the Corona epidemic, the machinery which was closed in the park has started to be maintained again. Not only this, the district administration has constructed Burma Bridge in the park for the entertainment of the children.

In the absence of the Deputy Commissioner, Jalandhar, it was inaugurated by Amit Sareen, ADC of Nawanshahr and former Assistant Commissioner of Municipal Corporation, Major (Retd). In fact, this Burma Bridge was built by Major Sarin during his tenure in Jalandhar and today he himself inaugurated it.
