  • A damn beautiful garden full of greenary and colorful flowers and trees. A well maintained garden at a very peaceful location of the city. It was so mesmerizing and amazing experience and literally an unexpected beauty of this mother nature. Each and everything was so perfect and the sound of water flowing and birds chirping around adds additional perks to its beauty. Loved this place a lot.
  • Visited this place on a Sunday in the evening around 5 pm. Be prepared for a long queue if you are planning to visit during this time. The place was heavily crowded, yet you can find some corners in the garden which is less crowded. Although it is mentioned not to walk on lawns, you will find plenty of people walking on the lawn. There are lady cops who keep patrolling and asking visitors to step out of the lawns. Overall a good place to spend some time. The entry fee is just Rs 5. You will find a lot of zones to take good pictures. I think if you are coming to Pune and have some time to kill, then you should surely visit this place.
  • The garden doesn't have flowering plants. Tree shades are very less. You can't relax on the lawns. No dustbins anywhere in the park. Only benches are available. No back benches for relaxed sitting. The maintaining authorities should look into planting flowing plants to enhance the beauty of the garden sand attract more crowd. The entry fee collected Rs. 5/ per head can be utilized to do the above and also provide back resting benches for relaxed seating. The size of the garden being small the suggested improvements can be easily implemented. There is additional income is already through vehicle parking also.
  • A nice garden for hang around and relax. However, it's generally crowded so forget about peace and tranquility and to be close to nature. But nevertheless a good place go and you can spend 20-30 minutes. Come with your kids who can play around. Ticket cost is very minimal.
  • One of the beautiful place to visit in Pune city. It has an entry fee of ₹5 per person, there is ample space for parking 2 wheeler and 4 wheelers, they charge ₹10/₹20 for parking. Sitting on grass is not allowed. Outside eatable items also not allowed. There are small snacks stalls outside the garden. All the rules and regulations have been there in order to maintain the cleanliness of garden, so please respect it. Nice place to chill with family on Weekends, also there are fountains and bridges and various photogenic places and plants and trees, so request you to keep your mobile phones charged as they will be required for clicking nice photos. Thank me later 😬
