Leisure Valley Park


For a green getaway from Gurgaon’s concrete-and-glass cityscape, head to Leisure Valley Park, a 10-hectare area that’s popular with local families, courting couples and cricket-playing youngsters. A musical fountain stirs up life in the evenings, and there are music concerts some nights. It's a short walk from IFFCO Chowk metro station, and right opposite Kingdom of Dreams.
