If you are in Ahmedabad and if you have kids, there is no better place than BALVATIKA. This has several rides and fun place of kids play. It will bring back your chindhood memories as well. It still needs an improvement in terms of cleanliness. Other wise its fun place to visit.

It does not contain many activities. There is a fish pond, some broken rides and lots of stairs to climb. Also there is only one entrance/exit. So you have to walk back the entire path after seeing all the attractions. It contains a Room that houses a sizable Collection of Notes and Coins from around the Globe, there is a... More

They collect Rs. 3 per adult to visit this place but yes it worth only for that. Coin exhibition & Mirror house are nice but other than there is nothing inside and the place is not well maintained.

Located Near Kamala Nehru Zoo, Its must visit with kids, My niece seemed to delighted with the rides in the play ground. Mirror house is another attraction to look for in Balvatika. The entry fees are quite low, in the range of Re 1 to Rs 3 making sure that the place is easily accessible to all the kids.
