  • Poorly maintained good property. Lots of trees and greenery but beyond that there is nothing. Looks like Govt cares nothing about this.  more »

  • Central Park on Pondy? Just kidding!!! But is quite a bit place in premium real estate area. Has enough room to sit, rest, relax, walk and rejuvenate. Couple of kids play area is good. Good crowd and really good people!!
  • This is a nice park most of the time. But it's difficult to get here by foot from anywhere but the Promenade. The proximity to the waterfront though is an added benefit as it allows for good air circulation. The park also borders the legislative assembly and other government buildings ensures there is some sort of maintenance carried out and some semblance of security is kept. This could be said to be the heart of the French enclave in Pondicherry. From personal experience: there are a lot of drunk men loitering in and around the park, even in the afternoon. Seeing them nap is quite an experience to behold. The architecture (the arch in the middle) is well maintained but doesn't lend itself to active participation and engagement. The cannons might be more successful in that regard. The toilets in the vicinity could be better maintained/opened than they are at present, but I found a clean one which is a hard ask anywhere else in India.
  • The perfect place for morning walkers. This place got beautiful garden view, people can explore the old light house constructed by the french. The War memorial and Pondicherry museum is also in walking distance. Its a nice peaceful place.
  • Under development park. No entry fee. Good place for yoga. Also better place for married couples. No attractive games for kids. ( No Kids zone)
  • One of the best places near the beach where you can sit and relax. I visited it recently and since I am a product designer, I took out my Pad, and started sketching out my latest prototype while I sat on a bench under a tree. The sea breeze coupled with the fresh swaying of trees gives new life and always keeps our mind fresh. The best time to visit this for meditation and for being alone is early morning. You can see people jogging and walking. In the evenings, you can see the kids playing. Nice place to network and get to people here.
