“Horrible place for the animals displayed there”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

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 supporting this enterprise financially by paying the entrance and camera fee.

“good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

This park is good to go with family. It has been made beautifully and i just loved the small bridge built over a small water canal. It is very picturesque and looked wonderful in the rainy season when i was there.

“Average Park and Zoo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

The Lady Hydry park has a small park and a very small Zoo. It can be seen within 20 Minutes.The Biggest animal was here Bear.There are Monkeys and different kind of birds deers and neel cow in it.Of course there is a small park also where we can enjoy greenery and different kind of flowers.In Order to have attraction of tourist the Zoo Authority Should procure some big animales like Elephants Rinos Tigers Hippopotomus and lions.I therefore rate this attraction as an average.
