Not sure if it was by luck or its always like this, but when we went it was almost empty and so so peaceful. The lake is beautiful and there are lots of birds whose chirping made our day. Good place for family.

Very pleasant place where one can walk leisurely, do boating or watch various types of birds inside a large avairy. Absolutely zero garbage and plastic waste. Greenery is well-maintained with trees and plants marked with their botanical names.

It is nicely maintained park and be prepared to walk a lot, there is play area for kids, boating, a walk in aviary, peacocks roaming around and can rent a cycle to go around the park. One can easily spend around 2-3 hours here
