Orchid (kachnar) Park Reviews & Ratings
This is very suitable place for running and walking, track is awesome and approximately one mile long. Benches are installed on every few meters so visitors can take the rest and can enjoy the greenery of the park. Washrooms are also constructed but there is no care of them so they are not useable.
Beautiful park along with the Islamabad highway in I-8 sector. Jogging track, cycling track and walkways are some the features of this park. Variety of trees adds beauty of the park. One can also spot various birds species in this park. Easy access and ample parking for visitors.

The park also has an outdoor gymnastics facility as well as various areas for ball games such as cricket, football and volleyball. The park attracts many visitors, mostly families, kids and adults residing in the adjacent I-8 sector. The park only has one public toilet which is very poorly maintained. Kachnar (orchid) trees line the jogging and cycling tracks and in the spring when they blossom, provide a beautiful ambiance to the park.
Very nice place for a morning run! There is a small exercising place where one could stretch or use public equipment for exercise. Track is long enough. There is also a bicycle track for kids, and benches to sit and talk. All in all, a very nice family place.
A very beautiful example of community lead initiative. Cleaning and maintenance of the park is managed by local community and it is one of the cleanest park of the city. It has a cycling track as well as exercise fixtures.
