Best Place to experience nature

Experience nature in the busy city. It is very good for morning and evening walk. Even good facilities like benches and children play area are there. Lots of people come there for their morning and evening walk although the park remains close during afternoon and after 7 PM. One can visit with the family for bird watching also and there is lake at the end of park way which is also very beautiful.
