The high monument of the park in the city is now reducing its glory as most of its momentous infrastructures are in rundown condition due to negligence even the boundary wall has distrted, Unscrupulous persons haveoccupied its land and parts of the footpath illegally to set up small shop and other business. the park now somehow maintains its illegible existence with no initiative to preserve the heritage. Under the circumstances the Dhaka City Corporation took some good step to save the heritage park. the condition of the area is ow dredful. 

People using the park's footpath. Very often people fall in fatal accident to many incident. Toll collector and vagabonds are dominating the area and are indulging in snatching which is on the rise. Historical Bahadur Shah Park (previous name is Victoria Park) lost all its importance and its glamour. Witness to many momentous events and once a traditional place for sojourn have lost all its past glamour. Besides, water from the only big artificial waterfall of the park could not be drained so that the water can not go out side the water fall area. It is very unfortunate that the last historical object of the Mughal Empire is now in very poor condition which demands immediate attention from the authority of government of Bangladesh.
