  • Massive ground. Perfect place for kids. So many children playareas are there. Animal feed area is best. Different species of owl , flamingo and lot more animals n birds are there. Train ride is too good
  • Amazing Park. Beautiful plants and flowers. Well worth the money. We've spent 5 hours there and maybe saw a 10th of it. So many hidden treasures. Lovely pet area. Staff at entrance, train and restaurants extremely helpful and friendly. We'll definitely go again.
