"Lovely place to spend quality time"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
My last visit in September at Eco Park with friends was a wonderful experience. Keeping in mind the vast 480 acre of open land inside the park, the regular tiresome attempt of maintain the well manicured lawn, garden and water bodies are highly appreciated.

It have a replicated copy of 7 wonder all around the world. I would say this would be a world standard park compared to many beautiful gardens that I have visited in other parts of the world. The price of entry is only Rs. 20 per person which is not at all big as compared to an attempt to the standard of maintenance and up keeping the vast land. The availability of several pay and use toilets and food kiosk at moderate price is also an added advantage.

I must also appriciate the Cafe Ekante though I think the food quality can still be improved. Also the Eco resort comprising 22 twin eco-cottages facing the 112-acre lake inside the Park is worth mentioning. The cottages are being set up on a 7-acre Eco Island that has come up to meet your thirst of a quaint and peaceful abode in the heart of the city. I am giving a 4 star keeping in mind the room for improvement.

"Relief from hectic life"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Apr 9, 2017
Park are the best place to rejuvenate and Eco Park is the best you can get in Kolkata. Entry fee is very nominal @ Rs. 20. You can enjoy fountain, model rain forest, gardens etc. You can also enjoy boating, cycling and ride toy train. Foods is okay if you are looking for snack. Best time to visit is in winter.
Best place to hangout with friends in weekend.

A beautiful place to visit during vacation. Calm, soothing and refreshes your energy. You can hire a bicycle to take a tour along the huge area. One would love to do boating in the huge lake in between. Moreover there are a lot of spots where you can take photographs.

"Horrible experience"

  • 1.0/7
  • Posted May 15, 2016
Horrible management. Cake ekante worst place if you're deciding to have lunch or food there. We waited more than 1&1/2 hrs just for the boat to come so that we can go there to have lunch but it didn't come we called up the restaurant and one man said we will send you the boat right now but when it didn't came after half an hour we called up again and they said the boat driver had gone to have lunch. After he returns then only the boat will come. I was with my baby of just 1 and half years I told him and we were waited for soooo long. We were fed up at last and had to leave the place. Worst place to visit.

"Must visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 5, 2016
As our Eco Tourism Park from Kolkata is the largest park in INDIA or you can say that it is the largest in ASIA too. It becomes a must visit destination for the visitors. You can spent your whole day hanging around. In my opinion it will be fun for the cricketers who go and enjoy there with teammates. It will be fun.

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 26, 2016
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.
