Good for children and bird lover. One can have real close photos with Peacock and other birds. Nicely maintained but Tickets cost are high compared to the overall facility.

Very impressive. Great landscaping and well maintained garden. The lake is not huge but looked very serene and has boating facilities. Great place to visit in late afternoon hours around 5-6pm.

So just like any other park, it has gardens, play area and lake along with boating. Good for spending some time. There is one enclosed area where there are loads of peacocks and peahens.Beautiful colors on these birds and a treat tot he eyes!

Although not the best lake boating experience, I like to go back to Karanji due to convenience. On this occasion though it was a nice boating experience for the whole family, but under a scorching hot summer sun. Seems like a better maintained lake now.

This may be because it is developed as a bird and butterfly sanctuary. Joggers might disturb the environment for these species. They need time for themselves, you know!
