A Quick Getaway from the City at a Reasonable Price
Chattar Park is nestled among the foothills of the Himalayas around 30KM north east of Islamabad and Rawalpindi. The drive from the twin cities along the N70 Highway to Murree takes between 45 minutes and 1 hour. If you are short on time and just want to get away for a picnic with friends or spend a couple of hours enjoying the amusement park with family, Chattar Park is a great choice, and not too pricey either.
The amusement park is situated between the highway and the Korang River which runs alongside of it. There are well-maintained gardens where you can go for walks and relax. You will find refreshments stands all around the park serving chicken tikkay, channa chat, dhahi balley, pakorey, and milkshakes. The park has a water slide and plenty of mechanical rides including a train, merry-go-round, and bumper cars. It also has a house of horrors, snake house, and bird cages which contain peacocks, roosters, and parrots. The food and attractions are all very reasonably priced. For the bold hearted there is a stream leading down to the river if you fancy a dip in the water. Be careful with little kids though – the current can be deceptively strong.
