Very good garden for walk and leisure. Ample of space for kids to play and for adults to walk and exercise. Special kids area also available with swings slides see saw etc. Though the plantation is not that great, but okay and appealing. Best time of the day to visit is evening when you have less direct sunlight.
Well maintained garden, having fountain, jogging track, slides for children. You can enjoy Morning and evening walk here in the garden. Highlight of this garden is big and thick cluster of trees, which provide shadow during day time. Good sitting arrangements for people.
Its another rose garden in Chandigarh NCR. Mohali’s rose garden in also a wonderful park for morning walk, yoga and jogging. In evening pleasant music make the garden for relaxing. Kids can do fun here, play outdoor games. People are aware of keeping it clean. Great!!
Best place for walk, to do exercise, children's can play here. Even old people can spend good time here. It is just in front of market.
It's not too big. Sitting arrangement is their. Few unseen trees are their which you find very rarely in Mohali. Very near to market as well. I little more maintanace will definitely make it a very happening place. May be it's not a rose season so did not find any variety of roses.
