“Green and historic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

Best to visit it during the Mango or Grape or annual flower show Mela
Has some decent eatery options around the park
It is not possible to see all parts of the park in one day
Kids love the space there and run around

“A very unique garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

Hyder Ali commissioned the building of this garden in 1760 but his son, Tipu Sultan, completed it. Hyder Ali decided to create this garden on the lines of the Mughal Gardens that were gaining popularity during his time. Hyder Ali laid out these famous botanical gardens and his son added horticultural wealth to them by importing trees and plants from several countries. Hyder Ali deployed people from Thigala Community who were extremely good in gardening. The Lal Bagh Gardens were commissioned by the 18th century and over the years it acquired India's first lawn-clock and the subcontinent's largest collection of rare plants.
Lal Bagh remains open daily from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. throughout the year. For the benefit of joggers, tourists and fitness enthusiasts, entry is free from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. At other times, a fee of Rs.10/- is charged. Entry for school children and the disabled is free all day.
Flower shows are conducted every year to educate people about the variety of flora and develop public interest in plant conservation and cultivation.

“Interesting”

The monkeys living wildly in the park were great fun and always posed for a photo without trying to steal your camera.
