“Very Good, Maintained botanical park.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

The prices are a little high as it is Rs.30 for an adult and Rs.15 for a child, Rs. 50 for a camera(It is not exact) but it is very well maintained and as it was independance day there was INdia shape made of plants.There is an amazing world map made of flowers.They also give boating which cost Rs.50 for 2 seater and Rs.100 for 4 seater.There are many trees and are labelled nicely with the year of planting. The oldest part is a tree called monkey puzzle right at the entrance planted in 1885. Very good. Must visit

“Just another park!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Nothing special here. There is a lake inside and greenery but nothing spectacular, except when there is the fruit show in may-june. then u can find a lot of fruit stalls (some exotic).

“Picture perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Well maintained. Picture perfect landscape. The fish view island could be a developed a bit more but that is just trivial compared to the huge bio-geography of the park. Vivid varieties of flora. Great place to breathe in all the oxygen :)

“Leisurely stroll through verdant park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Loved the well-tended park which we had almost to ourselves. The nutmeg jelly, available in bottles at the front desk, is well worth a try.

Beautifully maintained, well landscaped, and huge gardens! Trees, plants and flowers from all over the world. Loved the place. Reserve at least a couple of hours to enjoy it well though!
