If you are in Ahmedabad and if you have kids, there is no better place than BALVATIKA. This has several rides and fun place of kids play. It will bring back your chindhood memories as well. It still needs an improvement in terms of cleanliness. Other wise its fun place to visit.

They collect Rs. 3 per adult to visit this place but yes it worth only for that. Coin exhibition & Mirror house are nice but other than there is nothing inside and the place is not well maintained.
