The most famous Garden in the city is Akkulam located on the banks of Akkulam Lake. This beautifully landscaped garden is equipped with a Boat Club for boating enthusiasts, a children’s park, a swimming pool and a new addition in the form of a musical fountain. Akkulam could be a great place to have a picnic or a fun filled evening with the family. The Napier Zoo is nestled amongst one of the most beautiful gardens in the city. The Lawns of the Kanaka Kunnu Palace are rather grand and you could add them to the itinerary. There is also a garden on the Shanghumukkam beach which would be of interest.
