  • Free but probably not worth your time
  • It is connected to Metro station, easy to reach and you can see a big space and relaxing atmosphere. Bring your kids to here to enjoy a wonderful afternoon..... or ride your bike here, it is very well planned and organized infras.

  • Great way to turn an old train station terminal into an environmental, family oriented park.
  • Don't bother, not worth the visit. Got out in 5 mins as it was only 2 rooms , with old tickets and train conductor uniforms.
