Great place to visit during winter, when the flowers are in full bloom. Entry fee is only 30 rs. If youre going as a couple , consider renting the duo bikes and ask for discounts. A bike ride through nature is very enjoyable. Be sure to check out the rose garden. Theres a great restaurant near gate 4 offering homely Bengali food for reasonable prices. During noon and evening it starts getting crowded. If you like having a private time , considering going in morning.


Awesome place to spend quality time with your family. You will find the replicas of 7 wonders of the world, Japanese garden among other places to visit in the huge area dedicated only for tourism and entertainment. How can I forget to mention the refreshing stroll by the huge water bodies?! Its an amazing place to be in. The huge place has 6 gates! Land up in the correct gate if you are targeting to visit a particular spot in the place. Otherwise you will end up walking fairly long distance under the sun! Winter mornings and evenings and summer evenings here are soothing.


This is a good park for family and couples too. It covers a very big area for a park. It gives you a lot of space to spend some time alone or your close ones. It also has lots of rides....according to me they charge a little more but they are good. The most annoying thing over here is you have to pay money for even filling a bottle or using washroom. So it would be recommended you should carry a water bottle. but you can enjoy a lot in this park with just 30 rupees entry fees. And if you go there with 300 bucks you can spend a very good day over there. Overall its a nice park to visit once in a while.


Well I liked this place and its consist of a very large area, so I dont think one can cover it in a day.. I feel Winter is the perfect time to come and visit the place compared to any other season as its an open area.. You can come here with your friendsfamilypartnerchildren..this place is for all..and you can see and do a lot of things here.. The highlight of this place according to me is the 7 Wonders of the World . If you need to visit the 7Wonders of the World you need to go to Gate No4 I believe and then you can see them.. Apart from that, there are a lot adventure sports or fun activity one can enjoy..such as 1 Double cycling 2 Cruising Boating 3 Ice skating etc Its a wonderful place to visit !


A very good place to visit with your family and friends. A good place to wash all your tension away and rejuvenate yourself. Huge vacant spaces. A lot of recreational activities to choose from. If youre planning to visit the 7 wonders in the park and are not able to walk for various reasons, you can either avail the mini cars enter through Gate 34. Well connected with public transport. At dusk, musical fountain is an eyecatcher. Enjoy!
