  • Very beautiful garden. A nice place for picnic. We bought succulent from the shop there. They have a good collection of saplings in the shops. Very well maintained with mini ponds for water lilies. A must visit for Nature lovers or just to spend a quite afternoon.
  • It is a very beautiful place. It is a great place to spend time with your family. Lots of beautiful plants and trees. You can see a large variety of flowers here if you visit here during the flower Show. Kids have a lots of place to run around and play. The best time to visit here is during the Month of May, but be prepared to face the crowd as there would be plenty of people here during this time.
  • A beautiful place to relax. For people who likes flowers and tress best place to visit. They can walk all over the park and enjoy. Visiting during evening is likely as the chill temperature raise your mood. The officials are not completely knowledgeable about the garden so seeking their help might not help
