"Awesome place to visit" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
It's really a great place for outing with friends, family or your loved ones. A beautiful place with a humongous pond in the middle and an island. The park has a entry fee of Rs. 20 its huge and beautiful. Built amidst nature with a huge water body. The walking track is awesome with flowers and plants lined up. There are many cafes and eatery, you have option of cycling which are available on hire, there are golf cart for elders to take a round, there are shikara, paddle boat and motor boat rides available. It's really a great place to visit.

"Awesome place for Family Outings" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Visited this place with family a few days back. It's a huge premises which has 2-3 entry/exit points. Also parking should not be a problem if you are travelling by your own car. This place is absolutely mind blowing with multiple food joints. You don't wanna walk? No problems. They offer unique bicycles [as seen in yesteryear movies], they offer Battery Cars to roam around the park. There is provision for boating and watersports as well. They do have an "island" where a restaurant is there which serves delicious food. After dark, there is "light and sound show" which adds additional values. To conclude, if you need a family outing for a day, this is the place. Oops, almost forgot, Food is not costly like other "parks".

"It was a good Park"

  • 3.5/7
  • Posted Sep 5, 2015
Eco Park was indeed a very nice park and lovely to walk around. There isn't that much to do there but there are some food and drink stalls. Walking in the evening was most pleasant as the water glistened from the lamps.

"It's huge but lacks activities"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Aug 25, 2015
Ecopark is the latest major tourist attraction in town. Its all season destination whether with friends or with families. Huge stretch and lots of greenaries around. Also maintenance is good but I disliked the fact that there is no separate lane for cycles or motor carts. You will hear people ringing cycle bells or cart is honking asking for pass while you are trying to walk peacefully.

If someone prefers to see varieties of flowers then be there during advent of spring. Butterfly garden has no butterflies and park lacks any activities. Daily musical fountain show at 6. 55pm and 7. 20pm.

Few food stalls are available. Parking fee is exorbitant at flat INR 50!! Entry fee is INR 10 per adult and children above 3 years.

Many construction is going inside the park and eco lodge is also under construction for tourists. The attraction has great potential to be world class and a great initiative by local authority. Like many countries for such attraction will prefer to have yearly pass for families for those frequent visits.

"Clean, well maintained activity park"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Dec 11, 2014
Visited twice till date. It is very clean and well maintained. The tandem cycle, boat rides, etc are fun although a little expensive. Cycles for Rs. 150/- for 20 mts and boat ride Rs. 150/- half an hour. Not too crowded even on weekends. Food isn't anything to write home about and is of the usual samosa, chips variety. Wonderful place for kids, with lots of activities, and a refreshing outdoor place for parents and grandparents. Ample parking, but be prepared to walk a lot.

"One of its own kind"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 18, 2014
It is a huge park and one of its kind opened very recently. I just loved the concept in totality. You will find everything over here grasslands, urban forest, bamboo garden, tea gardens, fruits garden, tropical tree garden, than there is a path to stroll which is full of cactus called cactus walk, but my favorite was bonsai garden and butterfly garden. We went on a Sunday evening and had great fun. Entry charges are very nominal. There is a very good food court as well. We also had fun at the eco island went for paddle boating, zorbing and speed boating. There are never ending activities over here. A must visit place.
