It is not really a Botanical Garden, more an amusement park with picnic areas for families and weddings. The trees were very old, the green house was not functioning any more

A lovely spot to spend a few hours. the gardens are well maintained, and there are lots of paths to wander around and enjoy the surroundings. I went on a Saturday, so there were multiple wedding parties having their photos done, but there is plenty...More

We loved hanging out in this green oasis from the unbearable late afternoon July heat. The park attracts joggers and strollers alike. Shaded by tall beautiful trees, one large section of the park displays endless outdoor gym equipment, providing a quick exercise opportunity.

The zoo I don't know, but the Botanical gardens are amazing! A place to escape from the city and see some nice Tajik reals. During the weekends of spring/summer and earl autumn don't miss all the just married couples getting pictures around the gardens.
