Hi Mohammad,
The flatness here is caused by underexposure, so I've opened it in CS6 and simply made an adjustment using curves.
I used the eyedroppers, although an 'S' curve would probably have worked just as well.
And that's all that I've done!
Hope this helps.

There is a lot to like about this picture, Mohammad, in particular the action of the birds and children that you have captured, the birds flying, and the position of the bench and people in the top left. But I don't think you need so much of the building at the top, and the red and pink squares at the top are very distracting, so I'd suggest a crop.
I agree with others about the underexposure, and also feel there is some colour to be brought out.
I like the fact that you have filled half the frame with the birds, and that your shutter speed was sufficient to freeze the action of the running child and flying birds. The action communicates a message to me, and this is the type of thing that children probably do worldwide, at least they do here in England, scattering the birds by running into them. I don't think you could have improved upon your point of view or composition.
It's good to see you using exposure compensation because I imagine the light is quite bright where you live. Maybe just a bit too much for this scene, though.
I have done a modification where I cropped the top and sides, then used Levels to brighten the image and improve the contrast, and also added some saturation to bring out the colours.
