This is just a normal dirty park but yes you found a single banyan tree which covered the complete space. But after driving 2hrs its not worth. So it's not a must visit place.

The place is actually good, far from city and for a weekend drive. But there is maintenance. Crowded and not so clean. Worth visit once. The banyan tree leaves you mesmerizing with its branches spread so wide.

No, it closes at 6pm. This place is little isolated, not advised to visit at night.
