  • Went there in December '17. It is in very poor condition. It is a "wildlife sanctuary" only on paper. A herd of deer is all the wildlife this place has. However, it is serene and right place if you want to relax. Please do not expect this to be a wildlife sanctuary, it is only a park.
  • Who loves to see dears roaming in herds? Pay a visit. This is a natural habitat to many species.
  • Locally known as Deer Park, this beautiful natural place had lost all the charm as most of the movement is restricted with fencing with free movement for the deer. As localites have started using this place as their right to romance, this place is now just a few hundred meters of walk around along guided fence. 20 yrs back there was no fencing, people had the golden opportunity to walk freely and deer used to come very near to people.
  • I spent my childhood at Santiniketan and i can still remember that every B Day my parents used to take me to Deer Park to spent some quality time among nature and animals......so I feel a different kind of attachment to this place.....wonderful placeπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ€—
  • The closest you can get to the deer is here. Please maintain silence anf do not litter with plastic bags, bottles and chips packets when you visit. Please do not try to feed the deer your chips and biscuits as these are meant for apes like your kids. Please make sure you have transport waiting for you to take you back or you may need to walk at least 2kms before you reach the main road.
