  • It is just an ordinary park but a tourist attraction of this area. Good for families but not a park for full day activity. There is a children play area inside as well but on rainy day it is very mess...  more »
  • This is probably a nice park in season, but in January it has little to offer except green lawns populated by pick-nicking groups and--unfortunately--feral dogs. The park was mostly clean, and there a...  more »

  • For the 200 entrance fee for foreigners you get a park which is not well maintained and everywhere is lying garbage around. At the gate and inside of the park we was 3 times asked if we have a ticket. The second guy even wanted to take our tickets, so i guess we would have need to pay at the third security again. (Scam?) Good that we insisted at keeping our tickets. All together really not worth a shot and they should consider to fire some security and get some cleaning personal/gardeners instead...
  • Maintenance especially at children's play area is very poor. Not even slightest consideration for children's safty. Concrete slabs with pointed edges just under climbing equipment. So many people visiting the garden surely should generate reasonable income for maintenance. Smart entry ticket but torn at gate. Need more maintenance
  • The security lady at the front desk is a piece of work. Asked us how many people were there and then when we said 9 issued us 9 tickets. Failed to mention that foreigners price were almost 100% more and then when she saw we had one foreigner called us cheaters and made a huge scene. When we went to pay for the foreigner rate ticket refused to take back the ticket she had already issued us and then threw our money out . Refused to give the name. Here is a photo of a person who should be fired for verbally assaulting a paying customer. She's the one behind the counter. This is not how you treat ppl who pay money to see some damn flowers. Horrible representation of our beautiful country.
  • huge place to have a nice walk. entry is Rs 300 per adult. got children park. train is 50 per child. lots of roundabouts for kids. good place picnic.
  • The park area is really well maintained and serene. But the ticket counter issues tickets and they do not return tickets to us. Instead the guard gives them back to the counter so that they can be resold.
