Perfect Time To Visit Rose Garden

Specialty of Rose Garden are roses.

Roses blossom in spring.

This is Spring.

Whole park is full of beautiful roses of different colors. Others flowers are also complementing the roses. This is the perfect time to visit Rose Garden. Have picnic over there or take your kids for swings and slide.

Barbecue is also an option at night which they have already arranged a setup. Bahria management has put a few grill stands (angethi) over there. Take charcoal, bring your meat to grill and start right away.

Morning Time:

Morning time is filled up with people doing walk and jogging in Rose Garden. It has a lovely 1 km jogging track (though according to many devices which note distances; that track in not more than 0.9 km). Still it is the longest jogging track we have in Bahria Town Lahore. Roses and flowers make the morning time more pleasant.

At night times, lights lit up the jogging track. Bahria turn off the light at 10 pm. Many people find night time more convenient for walk and jogging as well.

Open Air Gym:

Bahria management has installed some of the open air machines for exercise. You can stretch and do cardio exercises over there.

Service Shoes In Bahria Town

In October, I’ve informed you about the opening of two new shoe outlets in Bahria Town. At that time, Shoe n Shoes was already opened and Shoe Arena was about to open. Both the shops are located on the main boulevard. Click here for the details. 

 

Here is another quick update for those who often visit Servis shoes. A name that needs no introduction. And when it comes to shoe brands, who do not recognize Servis in the shoe industry? They have just entered in Bahria Town Lahore. Store of Servis shoes is similar to Borjan and Bata. As it can be seen in the above picture, it consists on two floors. I saw this flagship store of Servis yesterday. I do know lately that a renovation work is under process out there but I don’t know exactly when it was opened in Town. I think they opened it without any proper advertisement or maybe I didn’t notice it before. 

 

However, you have now Servis, Borjan and Bata. All of them are located at the same location next to each other on the main boulevard near to Talwar Chowk. 

One Dollar Shop

One of the most popular gift shops of Lahore called ‘One Dollar Shop’ is now opened at the main canal road, Bahria Town Lahore. A very good addition to get your hands on a wide range of gift items. Well, we already have a few names for gift items but they’re not enough to consider every time. And they have a very limited choice of products. Similarly, some departmental stores also have a category of such goods. You can check other names for gift shops in Town by clicking here.

One Dollar Shop is famously known as a budget-friendly gift shop and offer you an extensive range of gift products and other household items.
