At Sri Yug Constructions, we understand the importance of nurturing well-being within the communities we serve. Parks and recreational spaces offer vital sanctuaries for relaxation, rejuvenation, and fostering a connection with nature. Vastu Shastra, the ancient Indian science of design, offers valuable insights into creating harmonious green spaces that promote positive energy flow and enhance the overall experience for visitors.

Harmony with Nature:

Vastu Shastra emphasizes living in harmony with nature's elements. By incorporating these principles into park design, you can create a balanced and restorative environment that:

  • Promotes relaxation and stress reduction: A well-designed park with positive energy flow is believed to foster a sense of calm and well-being, offering a refuge from the daily grind.

  • Encourages physical activity and enjoyment: A balanced and stimulating space can encourage people to engage in outdoor activities, promoting physical and mental health.

  • Creates a sense of community and belonging: Parks can serve as a focal point for communities, fostering social interaction and a sense of belonging.

Key Vastu Considerations for Parks and Recreational Spaces:

  • Shape: Opt for a square or rectangular park layout for optimal energy flow.

  • Entrance: The main entrance should be placed ideally in the north, east, or northeast zone, welcoming positive energy and visitors.

  • Walking Paths and Playgrounds: These areas are best placed in the east, south, or west zones, promoting activity and enjoyment.

  • Seating Areas and Relaxation Zones: Ideally, locate them in the northeast or northwest zones, promoting a sense of peace and tranquility.

  • Water Features: Integrate water features like fountains or ponds in the north or east zones, symbolizing purity and positive energy flow.

  • Trees and Plants: Opt for native and beneficial plants and trees throughout the park, creating a balanced and sustainable ecosystem.


  • Professional Guidance: Consulting a qualified Vastu expert is recommended to ensure a comprehensive and personalized approach to your park design, considering the specific layout and features.

  • Beyond Rules: Vastu Shastra offers guiding principles, not rigid rules. Adapt and integrate them into your existing design concepts and landscaping plans.
