A nice place to stroll around or sit have lunch and people watch, a pleasant and peaceful atmosphere here contrasting with the busyness of the city around it

Beautiful park that once was the East India Company’s garden park. Good for a stroll or picnic in the middle of the city.

Lots of Botanical gardens. So much walking through gardens, flowers and trees good for the holtculturalist but don't pay if you have no interest in trees or flowers waste of time.

An impressive and well-maintained garden in the center of the City. This is a free attraction, and well worth a visit. There are 2 albino squirrels that live in the gardens, if you're lucky you may spot them!

Attractive gardens in the centre of town with a history all of their own. Interesting to see the statue of Rhodes with one ankle half severed by an attempt to topple the statue.
