"It was unimaginable about this big beautiful garden in heart of the city. I entered from West side so had little parking problem. As vehicle is to be parked on the other side of the road. Whole garden is well maintained and is full of lush greenery inside. Trees and plants from different countries are amazing. Most of the tall trees are from Australia. They were really eye catchy. The bug rock near the East gate attracts to climb upon it. Kids enjoy this very much."

"* BEST place for a get to together Hangout with Friends, especially during Weekends. I studied in popular college for more than 3 years, which is diagonally opposite to Lalbagh botanical garden (from MAIN GATE). * BEST place for a Family outing during National festivals. Little more good maintenance is required, then it will be best place in Bangalore."
