At the riverside.

It felt like after decades thought it was not.

I live in just beside a river, can you believe that? Unfortunately, the time never matches my schedule so I can explore the place. You may be wondering why so. It's simply because the place is almost empty, with nothing much to see or do. Also, not many big trees can give us shade during hot summer.

But the place is refreshing, no argument on that.

I spend the afternoon beside the riverbank. Yes, finally.

The river is called 'Balu river' which means sand river. And the place is just around the corner of the city, 15 minutes drive from my living area. This river makes the whole environment cool and refreshing.

The weather was nice that day and I thought we should go there for some fresh air. Also, the place has huge greenery around. People usually go there to have some relaxing time and hang out with friends and family. But mostly it's like a free playground for the teens. Hundreds of teens go play there. You will see they are playing football, cricket, and whatnot!

The place is lively. But there are not many food stalls or anything. So who visits there don't have much to do except walk around.

This is an under-construction residential area that's the reason there are not many food stalls or anything. But people still go there to enjoy some relaxed time. It's like an escape from city life.

I would surely visit there again.

refreshing is the perfect word for this beautiful area

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk :), I truly enjoy exploring the world virtually each Wednesday seeing walks from all around the globe and feeling I am there and experiencing it all myself, such as I did in your post just now :)

I find that interesting. The photos you shared looks peaceful and calm. I'd be curious to see what else can one see among those grass and on the sand :)

All the other sides are full of highrises. hahaha...that's why I avoided it to share them. Because it will ruin the calm vibe in the photos.

Seems like it's a place for mental relaxation also if one wants to have a recreational activity such places can fill your positive vibes and thoughts. I just wish the construction shouldn't spoil the original beauty which is already mesmerising. Appreciate the work done.

Unfortunately, in this city, there's no value of nature. It's a concrete jungle. A few years ago this place was much more full of greenery but now the highrises are taking that view down. In a few years, it will be a whole city :(
We are trying to get as much as we can in the meantime.

This attitude is development isn't right, destruction at first and then no one is interested to go for reforestation. Enjoy the perks you are having.
