Mahatma Gandhi Park, Chikmagalur

Whether you are desperately seeking some quiet me-time or want to have a good time with your partner or don’t know what to do with a bunch of cheeky kids, head to this park. Beautifully maintained lawns, elegant trees, more than 300 kinds of flowers, neatly paved paths and quaint seats make this place a world of delight.
