  • Very well maintained, sprawling park, gets busy or even crowded during flower festival. With lot of collections of plants and trees, best place to visit for botanical lovers. Kids too can enjoy a lot. Very informative one with most of the plants and trees with names and information related to that. Must visit place.
  • Beautiful place and very well maintained. Snacks and water is allowed so you can enjoy the garden. It takes around 1 hr to explore the place. You can enjoy the different variety of trees and flowers. The landscape is just awesome. If you are traveling with your own vehicle then you can find paid parking just next to the garden.
  • Will have variety of flowers displayed only during summer season. Only few flowers planted along the footpath will be bloomed throughout. Other than that green house will have some different plants displayed. Definitely s good place for family to relax, play and rejoice together. Maintaining the water eats aren't that great.

Where to stay in Ooty (Udhagamandalam)

An established tourism destination, Ooty and the countryside that surrounds the hill station offer plenty in the way of accommodations. Most major Indian hotel chains have opened up shop in town and lie dotted around the hilly terrain by the main roads, the more salubrious among them enjoying a little more space and better views of the surrounding area. Look at the residential areas for budget-friendly guesthouses, or head for the rural areas that encircle the town center to find a number of atmospheric rental properties built during the colonial era.
