  • I guess, this is best for a good morning walk. Though, anytime of the day is equally good enough. Just that if it gets too sunny, you sweat a lot and if it rains, natural shelters (trees) are availabl...  more »

  • The garden is spread across a large area of about 240 acres accommodating many species of plants and trees. Due to its lush green environment it also attracts many birds and other species. There is a lake inside the park where you can walk around it or just sit and enjoy the beautiful view of the lake. You can easily find food vendors to satisfy your hunger. There are many club cars available which will give you a tour around the garden.
  • Lalbagh is a must visit places for all just to enjoy a free family and friends time away from the hustle of city. Huge variety of plants and trees. It has an amazing nursery. The park has a bonsai garden, a Rose garden and a tree fossil and a well maintained small lake. A good place to relax. Better to carry food as the place has very less food options. It's certainly a good getaway other than cinemas or malls. Must visit place in Bangalore.
  • Such a wonderful place .. Be it for an evening walk or for a get together.. This place is kind of huge and getting there with a huge crowd and roaming around together won't a problem at all.. This place has a lot of trees and bushes, such a lot of fresh air in short.. A small hill for a fun hike, roads for roller skating, budding areas, picnic areas, a glass house, a lake and so on.. More over if u are a gardening enthusiast you can get a lot of your wishes fulfilled right here with a shop that sells a wide range of plants and seeds. The street vendors could strip your pocket so ask the rates before you buy something.
  • A place with very old trees and good place to walk. Some trees give a very old look. There few trees which are gigantic. Good place for photos. It is reachable by the metro train. This place have a very good collections for a Botany student. The place is neat. We can also see faces of Leisure, Happiness and Calm. A contagious feeling which we always wish to have. Different people come there and many want to engrave their name or identity into this space. Seen many personal symbols and religious objects inside this otherwise Joy filled space. When we see this Space, we feel that is rightly owned by many different trees through a very long time line. Felt some trees should be more than a 100 years old.
  • Lalbagh Botanical Garden is one of the mast visiting place in Bangalore. Here we can see lots of different tree/plant with their scientific names and the age of the tree. Yearly the flower show is very popular and many people gather to experience varieties of flower blossoming at one place. Good to spend time any time of the year. It's a huge area takes time to cover everything.
