Good to spend some time with children as it is a good place to have a walk and also one can see animals such as bear, civet and birds such as vulture, eagle in the cage. Nice place to relax and take rest.

Excellent garden, Zoo as well as sanctuary, very close to nature. Best is a 'Maina' bird which repeats whatever you say at the fag end of this garden. Very entertaining for children. Really Good!

There are beautiful gardens with lovely flowers. There are some animals as well but most of the cages are empty now. Very good for children

I got to see a number of animals which I had not seen in this part of India. Well maintained park. Nice to walk and soak up in the sun. Kids will love.

This is a well laid park in the heart of Shillong. It couples a park with a small zoo. Nice place to sit in leisure and back in winter sun, while kids have fun with animals and birds. Always humming with the presence of tourists and locals. A good place for a relaxed family outing

Located in the heart of the city is this lovely Park with a small zoo within its premises..

The management does not care for the poor animals and they are just... More
