Lady Hydari Park is a pleasant place to stroll about. The premises also have a mini zoo, however the animals kept here are not being looked after properly and actually it takes away the joy of visiting this place.

The garden is lovely and beautifully clean with well tended flower beds. There are animals in cages in a mini zoo. The himalayan brown bear was pacing in a cage that looked way too small and that put us off the place a bit.

This is not only a great park for outing with your family but this park also shelters few animals that will attract children. Couple of bears, birds, monkeys and a leopard are the main attractions.

A normal place for picnic. So called zoo needs a lot of improvement. Cleanliness of water may be ensured.

Small park with a few heavily caged animals. Ten minutes was more than enough to make a round. Maybe if you go with children YOU can spend a while but otherwise not worth it
