Central Park, Salt Lake City, Kolkata: Photos

Top post on, the community of Indian Bloggers

Central park in Salt Lake City, Kolkata was more impressive than I had suspected. Salt lake city central garden has lots of birds, lakes, picture worthy locations and I recommend spending a few hours here.

Below are some good pictures I clicked at Central Park, Salt Lake city, Kolkata

The row of trees along the bank, coupled with white coating for the bottom half, makes them very scenic

A squirrel, Egret and Cormorant. Also spotted kingfishers, but couldn't take decent photograph.


Banana tree, spreading its leafs as if a Cobra's hood
A photo of butterfly- this is not clicked by me- I just clicked photo of the photograph that was displayed there. Couldn't resist.
 Notice the bluish fly on the leaf
 Lots of lotus flowers, with a bit of a zoom, could take these close up pictures


Some more reflections

We should have spent more time here. Map of the central park area given below. There was no entry fee or camera fee.

Central Park is also well maintained compared to other parks I'd seen in Kolkata. There was a central park metro station, but metro service is not yet operational in this part of the city.
