Kolkata Tyre Park, An Exceptional Initiative By WBTC

Kolkata Tyre Park Feature Image

Kolkata Tyre Park is the latest addition to the city of joy. This is the first of its kind in India where the main motive of this park is to reuse the waste tires. In general, people either throw away used tyres or some people burn them which makes the air polluted.

Hence, WBTC (West Bengal Tram Corporation) came up with an innovative idea to use these waste tyres to decorate the park. The Kolkata Tyre park was inaugurated on 13th November 2020. Although the entire park is pretty small but well decorated with trees, fountains, and lots of items made with tyres. Even there are seating arrangements and snacks available in case you want to spend time with your dearest ones.

How to Reach Kolkata Tyre Park

Kolkata Tyre Park is located just beside Calcutta Tram Depot (WBTC Terminal) Esplanade. It is hardly 2 minutes walk from Esplanade metro or bus stoppage. Being the central point, the esplanade is well connected from every corner of the city. You can take a bus, taxi, OLA, UBER, metro or even tram (specific routes only) to reach here.

Kolkata Tyre Park Timings & Entry fees

Kolkata Tyre Park remains open every day except Thursday from 8 AM to 8 PM at a nominal cost of Rs. 20 as an entry fee. Whereas if you have plans to visit the adjacent Smaranika Tram Museum, you can buy a combo ticket for Rs. 30 (separate tickets will cost you Rs. 20 each and only available in between 12 PM to 6:30 PM).

Note: You will get a maximum of 45 minutes to explore the place though it is way more than what you will actually need.
