I was pleasantly surprised to see how clean the park was. Being a weekday there was not much crowd so some of the attraction were not opened. There are two children's play areas and mostly everything was in good condition.

There is just a few animals like snakes, deer, monkeys, birds like peacocks, parrots, parakeets, etc. Not too may animals and some... More

You cannot find big animals like tiger,lion, elephant.. This is just the park with some small animals like monkey,deer .. Be careful sometimes monkey is roaming outside. Don't expect anything more here.. This is good place for lovers.
