Why to visit Nightingale Park

The Nightingale Park, located in Darjeeling's captivating hill station, is a public park area where tourists and locals can enjoy breathtaking views of the Kanchenjunga peaks. During the British era, this park was known as 'The Shrubbery,' as it was a private courtyard of Sir Thomas Tartan's Bungalow. The entry, flanked by a covered archway, leads to pebbled walkways that circle the oval-shaped park. Because the Nightingale Park is on a little elevated terrain, you'll have to take a few stairs to get to the entrance. The park was closed for almost four years for renovations before reopening to the public in 2011. There is a colossal statue of Lord Shiva, as well as a musical fountain along with the great scenery.

Special Tip

Littering in the park is not permitted and may result in a fine.
