  • Took a few minutes to walk around on the way to shopping. It was worth my while. Good to get back to nature and feel like you are in the countryside.

  • Park is a nice place to visit if you are with family since it has multiple activities for kids including a zoo, dolphinarium, haunted house, buggy rides, a restaurant beside water stream and a dino world.
  • Nice park for walking with lots of things for kids
  • It's a beautiful in the city. Very wide and there's a zoo nearby that you can visit. I like this place. Peaceful and less crowded.
  • Very nice place but everything inside is expensive. 0.5 lt water was like 1.2$. Just a water bro. I can’t even imagine about having a dinner there. But except that was a nice and lovely place
  • The park's territory is so big, very nice, clean and full of joy. You can rent a bike in the park and pay cashless, the detailed instruction is provided. The Zoo is also there, but you pay for it separately.
