About the spot:
The spot has been developed by HIDCO (Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation), West Bengal. India. Few Day-cottages (up to 7 PM) are there in the spot and the rate is Rs 750. This spot was chosen for the annual picnic of Retired IOFS (Indian Ordnance Factory Services). The picnic venue attracted many officers in this year. Total 106 retired officers were present and all praised the village within city.
About catering:
While booking, Eco Urban Village just said about enlisted caterer and we opted to engage one of them. But it is not a compulsion and we could have taken any caterer. However, the quality, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian, items were good enough. Behaviours of the catering crew was liked by most of us.
Parking: There is parking area where many cars can be accommodated.

About the spot - Eco Urban Village:
The area is huge (stated that it is over 15 acres). This plot has natural lake. There is boating (paddle boat) which visitors can use. Ornithologists, that is, Birdwatchers say that 17 types of birds from lands as far away as Indonesia and Philippines are coming in seasons. The chairman cum managing director of HIDCO was keen to develop this spot for bird-watchers, picnic-goers and other visitors. Eco Urban Village has a rural ambience with straw sheds for visitors and not of concrete. I could see man-made resources like concrete, tiles and other masonry items only in the toilets. The toilets were neat and clean without any smell, must be due monitored maintenance.
Swans were swimming peacefully in the lake.
In my opinion, ‘Eco Urban Village’ is a gift of HIDCO to those who prefer to spend weekends in an environment remaining away from Urban/City hassles in a pollution-free place with serene and tranquil environment. I am sure any visitor will get peace and be able to get some innovative ideas. I went to attend the picnic with my wife. But I forgot her presence when I was roaming around in solitary mood. I remembered many anecdotes of my past life. I just recall William Wordsworth’s, “They flash in the inward eye which is the bliss of solitude.”
Hats off to HIDCO CMD and his able team.
It is needless to say that I took many photos to encourage future visitors.
