It is a place with good greenery around, one can enjoy the beauty of man made nature and enjoy the flowers around, the chirping of the birds and the talks of the visitors.

The park is average, nicely maintained but the water pond needs a turnaround. Also, It has a small zoo inside. However, it is sickening to see that the animals are kept in very small crampy enclosures.

Children's park seems quite popular. Then there is an area for the dating couples to sit quietly away from the crowds. The park has a small zoo too. The collections of fauna of the region is quite interesting.
