Children’s fair Dhaka

The first privately built park for children ‘ Shishu Mela ‘ at Shyamoli in the capital. However, the previous name has been changed and the new children’s entertainment center has been named ‘ DNCC Wonderland ‘. This Shishu Mela in Shyamli is one of the entertainment centers for the children of Dhaka.

On October 15, 1985, 1.40 acres of land next to the Shyamli Children’s Hospital was handed over to the Dhaka City Corporation from the Ministry of Public Works for management as a children’s park. Later, a park located in Gulshan-2 under the jurisdiction of Dhaka North City Corporation and a park in Shyamli were given a lease for installing modern play equipment at their own expense. From there the journey of Shyamoli Shishu Mela started.
