kith and kin. It is a feast for the eyes of the nature lovers. There
is an exquisite Rose Garden and a large Food Park which sells
mouth-watering North Indian, Bengali, South Indian and Chinese fast
food. The nature lover would simply love to recline on the bed of
soft green grass and watch the clear and mackerel sky above. There
are severel Kiosks in the park run by reputed restaurants of Kolkata
which cater to all tastes with its multitude of palatable cuisines.
Today, Nicco Park in Kolkata enjoys the proud distinction of being

close-to-nature experience with its greenery, flowers and the cool
breezes blowing across the wetlands. Opposite the Salt Lake stadium
is the Subhash Sarovar (lake), which is not very well maintained but
has the potential to become a nice tourist spot.
