Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Excellent spot! This is a fantastic initiative by Govt of WB. But the park is developed along side the Road and 3-4 km long. So communication is a problem. Battery carts are relatively costlier. Go and visit though!

“Awelcome sight in kolkata”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

The eco-tourism park in new town is surely something this city needed,it is a pleasent site to your eyes with lush green huge park with innumerous trees and a large water body.trust me its so big that i would recommend atleast two visits to view it completely.There are a lot of recreatinal facilities too paddle boating,kayaking,water & land zorbing can be availed at a reasonable cost.One can also hire bicycles for half hour.An important thing missing is the presence of decent food ..some food stalls which are there do not serve the purpose fully.Golf carts can be hired for a quick view.The park is a huge crowd puller with famillies going for picnics on weekends.One can enjoy the beautiful sunset too.The lazer & light show in the evening is must watch.

“Eco Tourism Indeed , but better Upkeep needed !!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

The Eco tourism park at New Town, Rajarhat is a pleasant surprise, spread out in a vast area with lush green grasslands, large water bodies and with number of trees lined up, this park indeed boasts of an eco tourism spot. This has become a huge crowd puller during the weekends in the city.

Reaching the park : Located on the Rajarhat expressway connecting VIP road (Haldiram Stoppage) to New town, the park can be reached via a number of public transport options, most notably the AC Volvo buses.

The park has a number of amusement options on offering like boat ride on the lake, tricycling, proposed butterfly garden, evening fountain show. There are couple of eateries as well.

All the above apart, on a whole there is lot of negligence on part of maintenance. The park has a great ecological potential with varying landscapes but upkeep is very poor. All in all a great place to visit especially in the evening hours.

“Very good picnic spot for Kolkatans”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Acres & acres of gardens with lovely flowers and an adjacent water body. Wonderful spot in winter but the negative is the lack of shade in such a large area. The landscaping could have been a lot lot better. The food availability is below the mark

But overall a great place for Kolkatans who have been starved of such spots

“good place with damn security personals,insult couples.”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

well this is a nice place to visit. But the maintenance is very poor. I visited so many times. security personal's attitude is terrible. They are the owner of the park. we have to listen to them. we have to follow what they say. this kind a attitude they are having towards the innocent couples. they insult the couples. today I faced the same thing third time. well it is a nice place, except those security personals. they made this place like a jungle. they pee here & there. so I advice, couples, be aware & raise your voice or complain to the manager if you face such things.
