A lovely 400 acre park, that is landscaped with care and has lovely with black and white swans. They have a large walk through aviary with hornbills and a good variety of other birds. the butterfly museum is interesting. A terrific place for a picnic.

These gardens have had a recent uplift and are very pleasant to walk around with nice surprises. The avary is very well kept and unexpectedly modern. The swamp trail is another extension that does surprise in this hillresort.
The park is sponsored by the Woodland travel agency that also runs the nearby Kandawgyi Lodge hotel.

A lovely green national park and groomed botanical garden in the quiet hill station town of Maymyo/Pyin Oo Lwin. Lovely to spend an afternoon there after the long drive from Mandalay, especially if you've been around the hectic markets and traffic of Mandalay or the heat of Pagan. My husband was feeling rather rough after whatever he ate somewhere so we spent a tranquil and delightful afternoon here. We loved it and it helped him feel better stolling by the manicured flower beds and perfect grass lawn overlooking the pretty lake listening to the birds sing and looking for orchids. No monkeys, if you can believe it for an Asian park! If you do come off the beaten path up to Maymyo from Mandalay in Shan State, I would not miss this park, its worth it. You'll find the ubiquitous viewing tower at one end of the park, although an eye-sore, it does offer great views over the Shan Hills from up top. There are also places to get refreshments and golf carts to drive you around if you like. Posh!
