Beautiful park inside the zoo, it is one of the main attraction in Kanpur. We went there several times with family, and enjoyed every time. Joy ride in toy train was very good.

Although I have been here only once but my experience has been very great. This is a wonderful picnic spot. Animals are worth watching. Hundreds of people come here. Go here with your family.
