As far as zoos go, its a small one. I was wandering around, with a kind of superior attitude of having seen better zoos elsewhere, when at the fag end of a row of cages for birds, I heard a teeny voice saying "O mynah". Startled I looked around, there was nobody around. As the voice repeated the same words,... More

We were reluctant to visit at first but went anyways. It had a great variety of flowers and the colors all around were beautiful. A small zoo keeps kids engaged.

The park has a mini zoo and a small water body with ducks. There are some rides for the kids. We went on a Sunday afternoon. Found that the ride was over crowded. It seems the local population come to the park. The merry go round was used by some local youth, who seemed to be drunk and they were... More

For a bit of peace and quiet it is nice to have a wander around this park. It has been planted out very well and attracts many visitors, particularly groups of school children. There is a small zoo section here which I think should be closed down and the animals and birds moved to a place where they have plenty... More

A sheer disappointment, thats all I can say. Don't waste your time, if you are a tourist.It is good for residents to take their children out in the evening.

Lady Hydari Park was about what we had expected: it is a nicely laid out small park. There are lovely flowers in October. There is a little water body with pelicans and ducks. There are more birds than in Ward lake (you have to look carefully at the sparrows to realize that they are not the common house sparrows). We... More

Good for children and elderly people to take a stroll. Park is closed on Mondays. Opens at 9 am. Quite a few animals there but they should not be in cages I guess. The deer are ok though.

While sightseeing the Shillong city, you can visit this park. Boating in the lake is a good experience and the place is perfect to get some shots. The place is recommended.

I do not recommend this place. The entry fee might not be much but the park itself is pretty small and does not offer anything special except some nice playgrounds for kids. You will also be able to see many animals of the Himalayan ranges - incarcerated in very small cages and longing for freedom and more space. I regretted... More
