  • This place is surely one of my most greenest visit in a metro city. Lots of greenery and plants, also I believe I was there around best time coz almost all the plants and flowers were blooming. There is a small food court and small children place. I liked the pathways from under the plant bridges. Also liked the main gate architecture and greenery.

  • Good place to visit - huge variety of plants are here,inbuilt cafeteria has got yummy chat and fresh juices, bamboo trees add more beauty to this place however requires maintenance. Fountains are not maintained well and there are few areas in which water has been stagnated which is covered by dirt and leaves.. Improper behaviour of couples have been noticed a few times hence it's not advisable to take kids there. In order to carry camera , you will have to pay extra money and rate has been mentioned in the ticket counter.

  • Such a nice place to visit. Very good atmosphere. Good maintenance. You will have to pay 15 rs for two wheeler parking. For adults its 15 rupees and for kids between 5 to 12 years its 10 rupees. Below 5 year kids no ticket. For still camera and video camera you will have to pay separately. You don't get tea and coffee inside the park, however you will get fresh juices and chats in the canteen. Its the nice place to spend our time with family.
