Planning A Family Day Out? Check Out These 7 Kid-Friendly Places In Faridabad

Anmol posted on 10 April

Faridabad dwellers, all kids need their fair share of quality time with you. So, what better way than planning a family outing that’ll be as much fun for them as it will be for you? From farms and museums to wildlife sanctuaries and weekend at 7D movie theatres, we were pleasantly surprised by every option Faridabad threw at us. Check out our seven picks and you’ll know what we mean.

Raja Nahar Garh Palace

For a tryst with royal life {and subtle history lessons}, go and see this palace located near the Delhi-Agra highway (NH-2). The palace, AKA, the Ballabhgarh Fort, has a fascinating history {we hear it involves a rags-to-riches-story as well as the war of independence in 1857}. It was built during the 18th century and is a marvel for its sandstone structure built in the Shekhavati style of architecture.

Visit the place for its heritage, intricate cupolas and a beautiful courtyard. There is also a lounge and a restaurant for you to fill up your bellies after a tiring tour.

Asola Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary

Located near the Karni Singh Shooting Range on the Surajkund Road, Asola Bhatti is a great place to spot various species of butterflies, trees, birds, reptiles and mammals. It can be a little unsafe to explore the place without a guide though. So, we suggest booking a programme with the Conservation Education Centre {you can do it from their website or find their office on the first floor as you walk inside the premises} to make the most of your visit. The best time to visit this place is in the mornings or late afternoons. Remember to bring your own essentials including water bottles, sunglasses and of course, a camera!

Crown Interiorz Mall

Let’s admit it. Taking the kids out for an adventure can be quite tiring when the sun is being brutal. So, some family days are rightfully reserved for chilling in a mall where you can gorge on yummy food post watching a good movie. And, Faridabad has just the place for it. Crown Interiorz Mall in sector 35, Mathura Road has a variety of food outlets {read popular food chains like Haldiram’s McDonalds, Bercos and more} as well as fashion outlets for shopping to make for a Sunday funday. With a gaming zone {7-d movies FTW and a VR experience}, your kid’s will be engaged all the time. For movies, they have a comfy {and cheap!} INOX hall.

P.S. The place gets crowded on weekends. So, make your plans accordingly.

The Farm Camp

For a picnic scene and a campsite experience with your family, visit The Farm Camp for a combination of  fun farm activities like mushroom farming and playing with the farm animals and adventure stuff like zip lines, zorbing, commando net, lake crossing and more. One of their major attractions is a special meal put together with ingredients plucked from their farm. What’s more? They have a villa that can host up to eight people {time to call up your cousins, buas and chachas} and the entire stay can be customised for you depending on how many meals or activities you’d like to try. Extended family plans, sorted? We think so.

Casa Eco Farm And Retreat

Being India’s first organic eco-farm retreat, it is just the place to experience rural community life and learn survival skills like no other {who’s up for milking cows and learning how to pick fruits and veggies?} – and have fun while you’re at it. You can also go for outdoor sports or Bollywood dance sessions. 

For accommodation, you can choose from options like shared lodges, village-inspired private huts, and tents. Every room at the hostel comes with a patio and a kitchen where guests can prepare their own meals. They also have a pool, manicured gardens and a terrace which sounds like the perfect ingredients for a family party. If you’ve booked the place, you’ll have all the privacy you need as they will not take any other booking during your slot. Sounds amazing, right?
