The Duncan Ecological Park is one of largest parks in Ukhrul district. Located 3 kilometres from the Ukhrul district headquarters in Phungrei, it is a popular picnic spot. It was established in the year 1984. The children’s park inside its campus is a crowd-puller and locals are regularly seen revelling in the open spaces.
However, over the years the park’s condition has deteriorated to a large extent mainly due to lack of maintenance. The government has also failed to take any steps to promote the Duncan ecological park. Measures are now being taken to improve the condition of the large park, and one of the first steps towards it has been the inclusion of a children’s park. Local leaders have been very vocal about their concern for improving the conditions of the park. Many have said that steps should be taken to plant trees in the park.
