A well maintained harden in the centre of the city.

This garden situated right in the centre of the city has close proximity to bus stand, raikway station, beach and shopping centres. Its open from 3-7pm in the evenings. Its a very good place for evening walks or for casual talks and time pass. Itd maintained really well and has got good manpower to keep it well. You can reach here by 4 pm and spend two hours here and can go to crown cinemas for first show. You will definitely have a good and memorable evening to cherish upon

Refreshing good air in the busy city

Best place to relax at the heart of the city. Amazing to see an huge area in the middle of the city that's maintained pretty nicely. Just grab some freshly roasted groundnuts, sit on the lawn and enjoy no matter. It's better to visit during evenings to escape from the scotching sun.

Mananchira square, a good joint for a relaxing time

It is situated in the heart of the city; yet free from the hustle and bustle of the city. Full of greenery, sculptors, and a vast expanse of lawns to sit and relax with your dear ones. A nice spot. You will enjoy your sitting here in the evening. The sad point is that the security alerts you to leave by 8 o'clock in the evening spoiling your joyful mood. You will love to sit here for long hours. I think they must allow at least till 10 pm. Do come here with your family or friends along with a few packets of snacks. It's a wonderful and exciting experience.

Wonderful Park amidst the busy life

Mananchira Square is beautifully located in the middle of the busy Calicut Town. Best for daily morning or evening stroll. Ideal place to chat with friends after school or college hours. Well maintained and clean park too.

Big park in the centre of the city

Mananchira is a central part of the city with many busy roads meeting here. There is a very large garden and park in the middle which gives an oasis of calm around the crowded shopping areas.
