With a series of holidays, we might plan to go outstation. However, practically this isn’t possible everytime.
So what does one get to do on holidays apart from malls, home or restaurants?
As a Bangalore an, we surely recommend Balbhavan, Cubbon park.
While we agree, there is a lot to be taken care in its maintenance, yet it’s simplistic play accessories fill up for huge volumes of joy for children. Do go for a ride in the toy train. It doesn’t matter your age or your child’s age.

Do visit the aquarium which is adjoining the Balbhavan.

You can also set an old style family picnic where you can get your own food, get badminton rackets or go in for a Frisbee play.There’s also a hillock where kids can climb and play.

Balbhavan has other plus points as it is accessible by metro train. Also there is enough space for children to run around.
Children in the age of 2 to 10 years will carry back lots of awesome memories.
One also has the option of going in for games like old style Tora Tora that were found in ‘melas’ in yesteryear’s times.
