The park is very open and beautiful. Many people ride their bike very relaxed on the blue lanes. Many color birds chirping. We also saw a very large lizard around 5-6 feet long swimming in the water and then made its way up on land.
The best park to have a picnic with people or have your own time. Love the nature. Some people were also selling mangoes, water or some finger food. Highly recommend it.
