Indroda Nature Park, Gandhinagar

Situated on the outskirts of Ahmedabad, Indroda Village Nature Park, spread over an area of about 468 hectares on either bank of Sabarmati, is an ideal place for nature lovers. The Sabarmati River bisects the park; in the summer a thin ribbon of water flows sluggishly in a wide and sandy riverbed, but in monsoon the river is heavy with water and spreads water life up onto its banks. The park provides home to many wild animals like jackal, wild boar, hare, porcupine, crusted honey bee buzzard and other kinds of mammals. A wide range of reptiles and birds are also found here. The park is surrounded by developed land on all sides. There are office buildings, a small zoo, and botanical gardens within the park boundary. 

It is also considered to be the second largest hatchery of dinosaur eggs in the world. Regarded as India's Jurrasic Park, it is run by the Gujarat Ecological Education and Research Foundation (GEER), and is the only dinosaur museum in the country. The dinosaur fossils that are displayed in the park were found from various parts of Gujarat; namely Balasinor, parts of Kheda, Panchamahals and Vadodra district. The park consists of a zoo, massive skeletons of sea mammals like the blue whale, as well as a vast botanical garden, amphi theatre, interpretation center and camping facilities. It also has a Wilderness Park which is home to innumerable species of birds, reptiles, hundreds of nilgais, langurs and peafowls in its vast forest.

Camping facilities are available for the tourists.
