Lying on the banks of the gushing Hooghly river, Millennium Park near Fairlie Ghat and opposite the Railway Club, is the hub of adventure in the city. Spread over an area of 2.5 sq km, it has a variety of amusement rides for children, along with beautifully landscaped gardens. These make it a great stopover for families. It is speckled with sculptures that add to the beauty of the park. From here, you can get splendid views of the Howrah Bridge.

With an aim to decrease the pollution in the river waters, the Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA) gave this park to the city on December 26, 1999, as a millennium gift. It is a part of the first phase of the Kolkata Riverside Beautification Project.
