So kids, get ready to enter the land of great fun and true learning.

How to enter Kids City

Helping your kid get into Kids City and enjoy its benefits is really easy. All a child's parent or teacher needs to do is get the kid registered the first time they pay a visit. A personalized Smart Card with unique ID, photograph and signature will be issued to each kid and this needs to be brought along in each visit to Kids City.On each visit, the entry ticket will entitle the kid to a minimum of 3 activities of nearly 15 minutes each. Kids will also be given RFID wrist bands to keep a track of their activities. On performing each activity, kids will be entitled to earn VirMos, which can be later spent by them on goods and services available in Kids City. The earned VirMos will be credited or debited in kids savings account in the virtual bank.

Butterfly Park

Butterflies have stirred the imagination of people for ages by their grace and beauty. The exuberance of colours has been a fascination. As children, we grow up with stories of butterfly and the metamorphosis of a caterpillar. However, not much attention is paid to the habitat and behaviour of the butterfly and variety of its species. The butterfly park will thus generate awareness and compassion for these creatures. It will also be an important place for the conservation of this quickly depleting species.

Insects have been the target of human disrespect. They have evoked emotions of fear and disgust. However, they are crucial part of the ecosystem. This park will fulfil its role as an educative park and will endeavour to change the mind set of the visitors.

In One Tree hill garden total 8000 sq. meter area is isolated for butterfly Park. We know that you are also concern with environment and helping conservation of Butterflies and their habitat in this park, so you will not pluck flowers and touch butterflies.
