The best thing about Indira park are the activities. There are lots of things to do here at Indira park. I go there often. Its rose garden is beautiful, there is rock garden too. I usually go for jogging early morning, it's very refreshing at that time and not crowded. In morning there are yoga demo classes too, free of cost. You can go in evening too for small picnic or play some games, they have fishing facilities and skating rink too.

I went to here recently. I really liked this park. There is a negligible entry fee to Indira park. It remains open till 7.30 pm, so i went after office. It was little crowded but even then i got nice place to sit there. It is huge, lots of trees and flowers, some nice rock sculptures too, and some play options just for kids. Overall one of the best park i have ever visited.

Indira Park is located close to Hussain Sagar Lake, in the Tank bund area. This has too many options for activities, there is fishing, boating, its rock garden and rose garden are quite beautiful to see but in spite of all this it is not well maintained. It is so huge and mostly crowded, authorities can actually maintain it properly and make it a better park.

Indira Park is located in the middle of the city, it is very easy to reach here. We stay close by so for us, it is usual spot to go with family for picnic or just for some hours in evening. Timings for Indira Park are also quite suitable for us, it is open upto 7.30 in night so you can spend time leisurely. Inside the park, you get green space to sit and play, right in the middle of city! There are games for kids and some for adults too. It is best in mornings.

Indira park of Hyderabad has almost everything, but nothing in good condition! Its musical fountain doesn’t seem to work properly. Some boats in the small lake in the middle of the park. I found everything so so, nothing special. A good place for walking though. Its timings are from 8.30 to 7.30. there is facility of skating at Indira park too, but I didn’t try it not sure how it is.

Indira park is huge and nice green but it is now not at all maintained, there was no boating when we went, the water of the lake was stinking. It was dirty. Earlier there used to be varied kinds of bird to see here but now you can not spot many birds. Because of lack of maintenance this park losing its charm.
