Bengaluru may be a city of multiple malls and coffee shops, but good ol’ Lalbagh has not quite lost its charm as a holiday destination, testifies a recent study.
The spacious Lalbagh Botanical Gardens is the most preferred recreation destination for families and youth, and nearly three-fourth of visitors (72.5 per cent) are university degree-holders, reveals a study conducted by the Institute for Social and Economic Change (ISEC).
The study was carried out with the aim of conserving the urban ecosystem that includes parks, water bodies, green spaces and other natural resources.
Affordable and safe Lalbagh is spread over 240 acres. It’s the most affordable and safe tourist destination for families. Being an enclosed area, it ensures security to visitors’ family members, according to a study on the socio-economic profile of visitors.
The survey said improvement in road conditions, traffic and parking facility would attract more visitors. There were suggestions for improvements in waste disposal, lavatories, food and beverage services. The study was carried out with the aim of conserving the urban ecosystem that includes parks, water bodies, green spaces and other natural resources.
