An initiative of Covid warriors in association with the Telangana government, the park Haritam has come up at Panchavati Colony on Road Number 10, Banjara Hills.
Dozens of Covid warriors joined relatives and friends of those who lost their lives to Covid to plant the saplings.
Some people tied to the plants writings in memory of their near and dear ones. "Miss you Babai", "Miss you friend", "Miss you all brothers and sisters" read some of the notes.
The park has been developed by a group of Covid warriors in association with the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) and the Forest Department as a tribute to those who succumbed to the pandemic.
The park, which will also have a walkway and benches, will be maintained by GHMC for one year and later by volunteers.
The plantation drive under the state government's greenery initiative Haritha Haram was launched on Sunday in the presence of British Deputy High Commissioner Andrew Fleming, Rajya Sabha member Santosh Kumar, the founder of Green India Challenge and MLA D. Nagender.
They planted trees in memory of those who succumbed to Covid. "I think this is the fantastic way in which they can be remembered and at the same time do good for the state of Telangana," said Fleming.
