Shrubbery Nightingale Park in Darjeeling is a beautiful public park in the city. Erstwhile the private courtyard of Sir Thomas Tartan’s Bungalow, this park was once upon a time the relaxing place for the British women back in the colonial days.
After being destroyed in a devastating earthquake in the year 1934, it was rebuilt into a splendorous park that became renowned for its beauty all over the country. During 1950s and 60s the park was a hot spot for Bollywood movies. However, with passing time after a couple of decades the park was neglected due to the growing tension in Darjeeling hills.
