I went there with family. Walking in the garden streets is my best time there. They have just a very little seasonal flowers to see..It seems this garden doesnt need to be attractive anymore..may be because very few visitors are interested going there nowadays.

The best time to visit is in winter (December, January, February), which is freezing in Pyin Oo Lwin (May Myo) at that time. However, if you'd like to get away from cities in summer, it will also be great because during that time, the weather is neither cold nor hot, but I don't recommend to go there in the rainy season. On the nice spot in the garden, you can have a picnic especially near the lake and it's a big compound, so the children would be so happy to play and run around. Furthermore, there are various kinds of animal species that you'll feel like you're in another world.
Moreover, the flower festival is held from December to January in the National Garden, so you'll see various kinds of flowers in one place. Only one problem - crowded with people and it is a bit of nightmare to get through many people in the festival.
In addition, can get hundreds of photos with a breathtaking views.

I was just re-reading my blog about my visit to these gardens in 2014, where I saw a park keeper poisoning a stray dog that clearly just had puppies. This was apparently a daily ritual because dogs were not allowed in the park. I sat with the dog for about half an hour, crying my eyes out as she was clearly in a lot of pain. I wonder if anyone knows if they have stopped these practices or if there is a way of doing anything about it. I remember having been in contact with local rescue centres, but them being unable to take action to stop these cruel practices.

Excellent garden with an aviary, butterfly museum, orchid collection, pine forest, bamboo collection, view tower, and really neat petrified wood collection as well as beautiful swan ponds and well groomed flower paths with plenty of photo ops. Don't forget to drop by and see the takin, a rare type of mountain goat-buffalo.

January/februar is not the best time of year to visit the park. I enjoyed the Orchids and the view from the tower. The white and black swans were beautiful.

One of the highlights of our visit. We enjoyed the opportunity to meet some local families and also observe a large group of college students dancing in one of the meadows.

We spent almost 3 hours here, taking our time to stroll and admire the beautiful flowers and scenery. Fed a takin (an animal found in Myanmar n Bhutan) bananas n also visited the butterfly museum n bird enclosure. There was a fair there n we bought Mandalay roasted coffee and sipped it slowly in the cold. Be there by 9am to avoid the noon crowds.

It's a big and nice place to walkaround and to take some leisure strolls and photos. We saw some monkeys up the tree as well. Stoppedby the butterfly museum as well which has quite a good showcase. Overall enjoyable. But best to go early so that the weather is not too hot.
