Best Gardens In Hyderabad

the fullhyd.com team
After the zillion rounds of KBR, it's easy to forget that there are other parks in town, too. Here are the best places to escape global warming, or at least from your life.
BEST GARDENS AND PARKS IN HYDERABAD/SECUNDERABAD
  • The renovation in the late '90s did quite a bit for its appeal - with stone and gravel paths crisscrossing the entire length and breadth of the park, Indira Park is now quite a hit.

    Where: Lower Tank Bund, Opposite To Ramakrishna Math, Nr Bandamaisamma Nagar, Domalguda (2.4 km)

  • Are you what Wodehouse might call an incurable goof? Here's good news, if the shortage of putting greens in the city has got you down. Miniature golf, for the first time in the city!

    Where: Beside Sanjeevaiah Park, Necklace Road (4.1 km)

  • With rocks, in case you didn't figure. Lots of 'em. It could turn a sober mountain into a rockaholic.

    Where: Next to Ambedkar Open University, Jubilee Hills (8.4 km)

  • It's not the last word in verdant wonder, but once your spirits are nice and mellowed, you'll stick around for longer than you expected at the Botanical Gardens.

    Where: Near Kothagudem Forest Reserve, Near Hi-Tech City, Kondapur (13.8 km)

  • 128 deer, 15 different species of birds and snakes, and monitors afoot. This is not the forest version of Fear Factor. Far from it. It's a huge, shaded park right outside town.

    Where: Jawahar Lake Tourist Complex, On Karimnagar Highway, Shamirpet Mandal

  • The largest zoo in India. Would have been largest in the world, but they're still not dumping traffic rule violaters in here.

  • Cared for by an army of 500, the city's most well-known lawns promise soothing afternoons and much more pleasant evenings. For most locals, visiting the Public Gardens is like a temple-ritual... they keep returning.

    Where: Assembly Road, Nampally (0.7 km)

  • If you look around you, you might get the feeling that you're invading privacy here. The park is famous for certain kinds of rendevoux, and the entire city knows that. But walk on.

    Where: Along the Hussain Sagar Lake, on the road connecting the Tank Bund Road to Necklace Road on the Secunderabad side, Tank Bund (2.3 km)

  • It's very easy to take the wrong turn when you're going to Chacha Nehru Park: and a wrong turn may not be very pleasant. There's a reason, however, that the park is so popular - the people who get in the right way are quite happy.

    Where: On the road running under the Masabtank Flyover, perpendicular to it Behind Sports Coaching Foundation, Masab Tank (1.9 km)

  • Located in a man-made crater halfway between Banjara and Jubilee hills, the Jalagam Vengal Rao park has some of the greenest grass in the city. The pond in the park is also one of the greenest in the city.

  • A good place to go boating once in a while and catch a glimpse of India's largest Buddha statue. It's hard these days to find anyone looking so peaceful.

  • You can have a real good time at KBR just taking in the serenity and stillness of the park, if you promise to not laugh or talk loudly. Apparently that's punishable under some law or something.

  • No, it's not Bharatpur, and it's not going to be anytime soon, but it will do. It's a wonderful experience to take a walk here. Alternatively, you could just sit and watch the birds.

  • The Landscape Garden is almost 600 acres of greenery suitable for a morning walk and an exercise schedule. But this was made for the OU students to study and then pray, and has amenities for both.

  • Autorikshaw drivers, lovers, psuedo cricketers, grafitti artists...once picturesque, Osman Sagar now plays host to the down-and-outs of the city.

  • Three years ago, the wilderness on both sides of Road No. 36 in Jubilee Hills was demarcated from the main road, and a park was conceived. Today, it doesn't look much different.

  • And the huge Ashokas and Banyans are not the only reason for all the rustling here.

  • Try not to look at the marvelously hideous fountain that greets you when you walk through the golden gates of the NTR Gardens. All right, so you've seen it. It's okay, time heals everything.
