“A Park "a la francaise"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Small park in the middle of the town, very well maintained and pretty. It is close to the sea shore, the Gandhi statue and the French war memorial. Lots of people relax there, alone or in families. Spend some time or go through from Gandhi Statue to the commercial area of Gandhi Rd and Nehru St

“a large circular patch of shade amidst the huge buildings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

quite well frequented place, no entry fees, snacks and drinks are available around the park, we also found some people selling a meal pack for the needy...
Ashram meals are not far away and the Governors house is just opposite..the beach front and Promenade is a stones throw away

“Nice place to have rest & stroll in pondy weather”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Nice place to have rest & stroll in pondy weather. With so many heritage & Government buildings surrounding this park, it is convenient to have few minutes of rest in shade at this park

“Worth a quick visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Quite a small park, but fairly popular with the locals. As there's not too much to visit in Pondicherry, it's worth strolling around the park for a few minutes.

“Well Maintained Park!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

This park is very well maintained and is a nice place to spend some precious time with family and kids. Since it was warm in the city so we took a beak in this park. Enjoyed clicking a few pics of the beautiful birds in the arms of mother nature.
