  • What a collection of trees !!!exotic indigenous and foreign specimens. Well manicured gardens. Amble along the walkways. Experience nature's creations. Root formations! Flowers! Time flies . Lose count of time.
  • Beautiful must visit place in Ooty. Parking in private lots around the park gate. Visit the sales counter and buy house plants for cheap. Visit the special gardens for cactus, ornamental flowers etc. you will have to climb a few lots but worth it. Pay for your camera and you can spend hours or even whole day shooting beautiful photos. With such great background even your fat bald uncle will look cool
  • It was really a good time for me as I had spent few hours there. The lush green enthralled me. The overall plan of the garden is so scientific, even old fellows cann' t face any problem to stroll around. Thanks to the authority as they have been maintaining this garden so well.
  • Very calm, you can hangout where ever you want, very well managed and maintained.. Inside you get coffee or snacks if you are hungry.. Variety of trees are Der to see.. Well perfect for couples to make there romantic day 😉
  • Amazing! I just loved it. Not only because of the awesome tree, but also the hard work put in to maintain the whole garden. At trust me its big. really big. And still the staff takes good care of it. There are small ponds inside, playgrounds and educational/historic places to visit. If you are in ooty do not miss. :)
