  • Nice ambiance, like forest in the middle of city and planetorium show at 5pm and 6pm (in English and Hindi respectively) is good to see with kids. Zoo is also facinating 
  • Beautiful place. The grass is green but was greener a few years back. Heavily crowded which was not the case few years back. Good place to visit in morning hours. Evening is crowded. Don't hang around...  read more »

  • All in one easily accessible wherever you stay in this great educity cultural gateway of Gujarat named after Banyan trees.Park Museum Zoo well ness free good air good company..great public space gifted by erstwhile royals Gaekwad s to Baroda Vadodara in 1878
  • The park is a great place to hangout with friends. The atmosphere here is very lively with a lot of activities going on around. There's live music played all the time on the speakers all around the park. In the morning you can see people of all ages, running on the tracks, in the afternoon, kids can be seen playing around. Mostly couples are seen during the evening and night time. There's a toy train running around the entire Park in the evening, which I believe is a bit expensive. There's an amazing fountain which they usually light up at night. There are a lot of plans for the park, like rebuilding the old suspension bridge and a new butterfly park planned for future. The park is a great place to hangout with friends, but I wouldn't recommend for a date. About the zoo, which isn't maintained properly at all by the authority. The bird section has many birds, but some of the cages are empty. They used to have a hippopotamus, but the poor thing died years ago. Coming to other sections, the Lions, Tigers, leopards all look too skinny. I doubt they feed them properly. Unlike the zoo in Surat who keep the animals in their natural environment, here they're kept in very small cages. The people who visit also sometimes harass the animals in the cage. The security is worse.
  • After renovation it's looks changed completely. Nice, peaceful and clean city park. Well maintained by VMC.
  • Well maintained gardens with toy train, planetarium, zoo and small fun park. Enjoy lots.....
  • Excellent place to roam around with friends and family. I still visit here for one day picnic with my family. You will love the toy train and mini railway station. Loads of stuff you can do in this place.
