It is situated in heart of Shillong. You just came here when you feel tired after visiting some place in Shillong. It's calm environment and boating in lake refresh you for your next site seeing point.

Have been there many times and still it attracts me to go there again and again. Not much to see as it has a small zoo inside but not much animals. However the park has some activities for the kids also. Well maintained and very peaceful and of course good weather mostly.

We visited during March, did not got much flowers. As within the city ,the area is congested and you will find tall houses adjacent to the park. All these lower down the scenic beauty of the place. May be tourists can see lots of flowers during winter.

This is more of a botanical garden than a park. This is located near laitumkhrah. Cabs are available on hire basis to reach this place.

We were most excited after watching black bear. They have decent collection of birds as it was raining when we went most of the animals were not visible as they had hidden in their sheds. This is a mini zoo and you can not expect much. Good outing for kids

Very small park with children activity. Small zoo is here. If you are in a tight schedule and don't have children in your group, don't come.

This is an old heritage park of the hill town with a beautiful collection of rose varieties and other flowers. It has a small park too which will interest children. One can spend hours of exclusivity inside the park with an added attraction of deer park.
