Find some peace in an ancient forest. There are 3 parks, the one between Old Manali and New Manali is the best. You can view the Monal pheasant there. Entrance fee Rs 5 only,

It is just a compounded forest. They charge 20 RS per person but is not well maintained. No joy rides/ very less kids playing swings and no flowering plants.
