"Clean, well maintained activity park"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
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"

  • 7.00/7
  • 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.

Eco Tourism Park is created on a 480 acres of land which has a huge water body with an island in the middle. There are hundreds of species of plants and flowers in the park. It is a very good place to spend some time in relaxation and hang out with friends.
