Chikkamagallooru is growing as the new tourist hub of Karnataka. Due to its vicinity to the state capital Bangalore and some other cities like Hassan, Shimoga, Chitradurga and Mangalore and its cool climate, tourists flock into the city during weekends to visit various places throughout the district.
Mahatama Gandhi Park, also known as Rathnagiri Bore, is a famous tourist spot located to the north of the town. The nature park along with the site of ‘Mullayanagiri’ in the back drop was previously an open forest. The park was later converted into a beautiful garden, designed with pavements and lawns. The park has a wide suite of contrasting hued flowers and ornamental plants. Among other attractions of the park are the lotus pond and a child-cross bridge. Besides, Nehru Rose Garden to the left of the garden towards the amphitheater features over 250 varieties of rose plants. The amphitheater at the park hosts art, music and cultural events throughout the year. To cater to nature lovers, there is a greenhouse within the garden housing over 300 floral species. Furthermore, there is a telescopic view point, from where tourists can view the contours of the Baba Budan Giri mountain range. A kilometer-long ride of the Ratnagiri Toy Train at the park is a famous recreational activity for visitors.
