Rasulbagh district in Old Dhaka was a poorly maintained, inaccessible barren space that promoted massive waterlogging, vagrancy, drug dealing, and various anti-social activities that took away the happiness and caused frustration for the dwellers. With this thoughtful intervention, the boundary of frustration around the locals was broken down and now features a proper rainwater harvesting system which prevents waterlogging and provides free drinking water, a sports field, a playground, seating areas, walkways, a library, a gym, a coffee shop, a community hall, public restrooms and more.
