"When I thought of visiting for the first time, I feel like I would be at normal park with some facilities such as kids play area etc. as provided in general at park. However, when I saw the memorial structure within park, it was unique, creative and suggesting respect for the great warriors, socialist etc. Apart from this, there is ample space to rest, has madras university with ancient structure and clean road and well regulated area around the park. One can also give visit to Marina Beach to refresh your mind."
