This place is ok for a one time visit . The only worth seeing is especially the Penguin. This place is well maintained and clean. The other attraction worth looking is the hippopotamus, crane, deer & avairy section ( incl white crow).

Jijamata Udyan or Victoria Gardens is a peaceful serene place to go to. Located next to the Byculla Zoo, the place has many varieties of trees and other flora. Well frequented by local people as well. Can be combined with a visit to the zoo

This garden is attached to the zoo and you walk around here. The place is nice for a leisurely stroll and watching the trees and flowers. The statues around are also nice, though it needs maintenance. Overall it's a decent place to take a walk.
