This Udyan has the longest green stretch which is perfect to jog and socialise.

The park features a running or jogging track of 1.5 Km along the borders. The park is open from the morning at 8 am and closes between 7-8 pm. There is also a small lake in the centre of the park with the freedom fighter’s statue in the centre.
