It has more than 6,000 fruit trees, so the dense forest has become a place for birds to rest. A lot of birds have moved back to the forest. A lot of quails, Myanas, doves, and parrots have been coming to the area.
Families are also starting to go for walks in the Miyawaki forest. Among other things, this is because of the beautiful benches along the forest that draw a lot of people. People of all ages can sit on these benches to enjoy the sunrise and sunset. Colourful lights have also been put in.

There are beautiful wooden colours on these cages for the birds’ sake. This is how it works: As a bonus, they will also help Rawalpindi get rid of the environmental scourge.
The projects should be done in the next three months.
