“Nice place to laze around”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

It is one of the most famous locations in Ooty and bound to be crowded. But thankfully the crowds were thin and spread out when we visited during March. It is well maintained but the staff are not very communicative. We had a tough time navigating to the fossil tree which is one of the highlights of the park. The green house was closed.
Visitors can spend time lazing around on the lawns or walking around to explore the big Park. There are many varieties of plants and flowers and are well maintained.

“visit to Botanical Garden”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

The Botanical Garden is normally in every tour itinary, but it seems to be a filler for time. Botanically it is not have expected varieties of botanical plants as compared to an average botanical garden.
