We visited this place many time but now only am reviewing about it. Nice place for passing the time without borring and you have many things to see there. Aquarium, Parrots, Cranes, wild animals, and a collection of rare plants. Govt. is taking care well about this place cleanliness but for toilet facility they need to improove. Worth visiting this...

A nice place for both children and parents. What impressed me the most was the snakes and reptiles park. We combined our visit with a pic nic and it was a nice experience. Not something exceptional but it worth a visit.

It has different types of birds and few animals like deer, monkeys, snakes etc. So keep your expectations low... More

You would get to see elephants, foxes, mongoose, jackals, spotted deers and a few birds.There are a lot of stone seats available for you to take... More

We visited this park on the late afternoon of 16th April, 2014. My children enjoyed the park very much. The highlight of the park was the deer who was very friendly with human beings. The park had sufficient benches and shades for the visitors. The birds too were very attractive and beautiful.I loved the monkeys.
