An urban park surrounded by hills, located in the city of Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, Sivaji Park was a dumping yard not too long ago. But now it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city. The Sivaji Park was established for tourists back in 1999 with an investment of eight lakh rupees from the government. The entire park is spread over a total of a massive 16 acres of land full of gardens, flowers, trees and greenery.
Inside Sivaji Park
As you walk into the park, rolling hills in the background welcome you into the green gardens, full of benches and playgrounds. The large gate with the ticketing counter then makes way into a walkway made of stone that takes you around the park.
As you walk through the park you may stumble into orchid gardens, other flower beds, slides and swings for children with a huge number of lovely yellow benches spread all around the park.
The centre of the park has three huge fountains that pump water all through the day, and look even more beautiful when they light up at night. The circular dome-shaped structure providing shade for the walkway adds to the grandeur of the park.
Things to do at Sivaji Park
1. Kid’s Zone:The children have a lovely time here, due to the number of rides that are offered for them. There are quite a few slides, some which are a part of the playground and others which are shaped like animals and spread around the park.
There are quite a few swings, jungle gyms, see-saws, and monkey ladders at the play area for children. They also have a huge fish-like structure at the play area, where you can walk into the fish’s mouth and come out from the other side!
2. Roller-skating: Adults can indulge in roller skating, which is also open for children. The park has a section allotted for roller skating, where you can both learn, skate or just have fun with your friends and family. Every year they also hold a roller-skating dance show that is a feast to watch, as you can see roller skaters show off their well choreographed skills for you.
