  • It is very good place to relax. Hang out with friends, family. It is full of green. Even green color has different shades with different bushes, trees. It has path/track to walk, around ponds. There are benches around track to spend time. You are not allowed to walk on greenery even though it feels tempting. There are security guards rather ladies police constables. You can sit & relax by putting your legs in water. During summer it feels soothing, takes away heat. You can't carry camera but you can take photograph with mobiles. You can still take risk of taking small camera like cybershot inside . However I will warn that I have witnessed one incident where police constable took away camera & confiscated it. Temperature inside park is at least 2* less than outside . You can see Koi fishes inside pond. This place very very clean so don't throw garbage . Please keep it clean & enjoy
  • What a beautiful place this is.... It is a very nice, cool, and peaceful place.. I enjoyed so much here..
  • This is best place to relax.You can go alone or with friends or family.It would be nice if you visit in evening.Lawn is nice.There are some small ponds are there.Trees are maintained in different shapes and that looks good.This place is crowded at weekends.
  • Stepping in through the gates feels as if teleported to a garden in Japan. Is a utterly beautiful place, with serene beauty. The best I loved were the Bamboo fence.
  • Perfect place for 3D... That is Dil Dosti Duniyadari😊
