The City Gardens of Thiruvarur is located in the heart of the city and was designed for the recreation of the public. It is a marvel of landscape gardening. Even though, the City Gardens are located within the commercial area of the town, it still affords the easy ambience of a place that exists separately from the hustle and bustle of the town.
The place is a delight for both young and old, with carefully constructed pathways, water fountains and a special play area for children. It is easily approachable since it is in the middle of the town. The place has been planted with several rare varieties of evergreen trees. These ensure a constant supply of oxygen within the otherwise polluted city.
