Walkthrough of Gaur city 1
On our day visit to Gaur City which is considered to be one of the biggest townships of Noida Extension, we were excited as well as scared if this place could live up to our expectations.
As we entered Gaur City-1, we saw huge skyrocketing buildings standing toe to toe with each other surrounded by lush green landscapes and open air greens. When you walk through the entrance of Gaur City-1, just 50 meters away from the entrance gate on the right-hand side located a residency named Saya Zion.

Just between Radha Gobind Garden and 5th avenue, there is a lane that goes straight to Shri Radha Krishna temple. Walking down on the same lane is a Clubhouse which has all the luxury amenities in store for residents and a cricket stadium. Clubhouse which is a major part of a housing development scheme is still under construction which is a major area of concern at authority’s end. Activities like indoor games, open-air theater, party lawn, and other events or activities cannot be organized.
A Park is located right next to 1st avenue on the left-hand side which has a jogging track, open green spaces for meditation and benches installed for senior citizens to sit and relax and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

This avenue also has some well-designed apartments with children’s play area, garden and a swimming pool on its premises. One can have a picturesque view of the surroundings from the top floor of the avenue.
