We visited Saurabh Van Vihar in Palampur in March 2017. Its a huge park, dedicated to a Kargil War Martyr Saurabh Kalia. It has a lake, where you can enjoy boating. There are multiple swings for kids. Beautiful landscaping is done. There is a restaurant inside the park. A nice picnic spot for a visit with family.

It's just about ok.. There are other better places to visit instead of this one.. Also it's very less crowded

Recommended for quick visit for the views it offers. Boating options are also available. There is nominal charge as entry fees.

Went with family during afternoon and we were the only family in park apart from the park maintenance people. Boating is the only thing to do at the park and we were alone doing boat riding and hence enjoyed more. A bit off way but only thing to do in Palampur with family.

Ordinary park. Decently maintained. If one does not have time, it can be given a miss. The restaurant inside is quite bad - poor service, poor food.
