You can watch some deers very near to you which is very loving. A very nice place for kids also to enjoy and relax. Not well maintained. So you can avoid this.

This place is may visit area,Due to the poor maintenance the aim of the Government is not fulfilled. Weeds on the Lake if you like to visit through boating. Deer in this park are must see for the kids.

This park doesn't exist now, just locked door!!!, this is by the side of the Ooty lake. So, don'ty try visiting this place, it will be a waste of time, only the name board exists.

We have not visited due to lack of time & some bad reviews from locals at deer park. But we plan to visit next time with more friends - families.
