Andaman is that diverse tourist destination that is perfect to be toured by a family or group of people. Moreover, when holidaying along with your kids, you would certainly look for any parks, and then this would be of your help. But on the other hand, when the unique islands of Andaman and Nicobar have gorgeous beaches and unusual wildlife to draw thousands of tourists, the gardens may be the last thing on their vacation itinerary. Furthermore, many tourists are unaware that such green places for spending their free time exist on these tourism-oriented landmasses.
In fact, there are some lovely little gardens and parks on the fringes of Port Blair's main city. Furthermore, tourists who visit these lovely lawns with a plethora of leisure things to choose from will not be displeased. This is due to the fact that each of these gardens has its own distinct elements that draw the attention of tourists. The lovely gardens and parks you may visit while on vacation in Andaman are listed below.
Every Indian city has a Gandhi statue and a park surrounding it, and Port Blair, the capital city, is no exception. The atmosphere around Gandhi Park is quite serene, much like our Father of the Nation's calm and collected demeanour. A centuries-old Dilthaman tank, located in the heart of the park, served as a key drinking water supply for the entire city. Now, the park may be described as a wonderful hangout spot for both visitors and islanders. They would go on a boat trip in the park's neighbouring lake, stroll along its banks, or spend time on the rides.
As far as the locals on the islands are concerned, they are another favourite hangout. So although they spend time observing and spending time in this enthralling open area, it never bores them; this is the aesthetic beauty of Jogger's Park. The view of the wide waters from one of Port Blair's highest peaks is quite breathtaking, especially as the sunsets. Therefore, tourists who are on their trip to Andaman could also drop into Jogger's Park. All of these characteristics may pave the way for the Andaman Islands to become a romantic location for couples on their honeymoon. Also, the airport's lighted lights might be the next big thing to look out for.
The captivating Madhuban Garden is located around 20 kilometres to the north-eastern part of South Andaman, next to one of the most popular trekking spots in the entire archipelago. Here at the garden, the need of incorporating anything artificial is almost none, as the visitors could spot various birds perched on the branches of the trees nearby. Parakeet, kingfisher, tern, wader, swift, reef and heron are just a few among the many being spotted here. Even though the area leading to Mount Harriet is crowded with trekkers, a herd of a few elephants can be seen in logging woods.
The lovely Marina Garden is without a doubt is one of the must-see places on your tour, as visitors can unwind while also taking in the enticing scenery of the Andaman shores, as its name suggests. Furthermore, the park is only 3.7 kilometres from the Veer Savarkar International Airport, making it quite accessible. Rather than islanders, visitors to the islands are the majority of those who visit the park to relax. Visitors can either jog in the Garden's grounds or take an evening stroll, after which they can return home quietly after witnessing a spectacular sunset.
Children's Traffic Park
The Andaman Children's Park is similar to any other traffic park in the world, but it is notable for the fact that admission is completely free. They are proving to be one of the most beneficial visits of your entire vacation, as your children will learn the fundamentals of traffic rules here. Furthermore, to stir up the children's interest, some adorable miniature versions of roads and their subsequent streets are being set up and painted in bright colours to keep them glued. The kids could ride small tricycles and bicycles on these roads. Furthermore, the park did not hold back in installing some real traffic signals as well as some actors dressed up as traffic cops to educate them.
Veer Savarkar Park
This well-maintained park is located inside the premises of Cellular Jail Museum. There are 5-6 statues of freedom fighters who were imprisoned in the Cellular jail during India's independence struggle. They featured historical figures and the sacrifices they made during the freedom struggle. You would get fresh air there because it comes from the Andaman Sea. From the park, the visitors would get to catch a glimpse of the azure sea. It is free of charge. Through this park, one can see the beauty of nature, both the sea and greenery, which makes it more appealing.
If the visit to the parks is not on your 'things-to-do list while vacationing in the remote islands of Andaman and Nicobar, now is the time to think about it, especially if you are travelling with your family. You could unwind here before embarking on your next exciting journey to any part of the world. However, the aesthetic beauty of the white sandy beaches lined with lush greenery and pampered by azure blue seawater would not allow any nature lover to pass them by without paying a visit.
