RobinMitha, a Senior Contributor analyzed the park as just, “this is rated as one of Asia’s largest parks. It’s very green and orderly. This high point is that it is on the sea front (almost) and has a bit of history as it houses a pier built in the days of the Raj. Located near the entrance there is also a very old hindu temple that is a must see. You need atleast an hour to walk around and soak it all up.”

Let My Virtual Experience Go

Having heard a lot about this park’s beauty I decided to visit it online and explore about its much talked about mesmerizing charm. Luckily I got a chance to share my experience with many readers of this site who may like to know about this place.

It was so joyful to look at the aerial view of Bin Qasim Park that showed acres and acres of land all covered with pavements and huge green patches as if giving me a sense of infinite pleasure. It looks even more enchanting at night when whole of the lit park mimics star studded vast sky.

I have developed even more penchant for visiting this park in person and found out that it is indeed a beautiful place and whatever I heard was correct. I am really impressed by the architecture of this site and will advise readers to click some of their photos with a backdrop of this place.

    I have visited this park a few years ago which is located at very beautiful area of Karachi – Pakistan.

    The Park is absolutely huge it incorporates the Jehangir Kothari Parade and practically extends all the way to Clifton beach.

    It’s well planned and green although there aren’t many trees but it offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

    Some may find that this park is too manufactured and not natural enough but in a city lacking open, green and most importantly clean spaces, this park is quite literally a breath of fresh air.

    The best time to visit is at dusk and watch the sun go down over the Arabian Sea. The park is open at night and floodlit. Lastly, would like to appreciate about the writing flow, interestingly covered its nearby places!
