A street that never sleeps and is always bustling with excitement and pulsating with thrill, Park Street is a prominent tourist stopover. Lined with eateries, malls, high-end restaurants and hotels, Park Street draws huge crowds that come to sample authentic and diverse dishes of the city. During festivals of Christmas, Diwali and on New Year's Eve, the street is resplendent like a bride, and is lit with colourful and bright lights. It also hosts landmarks like St Xavier's College, Asiatic Society, The Park Hotel and South Park Street Cemetery.

Park Street is now known as Mother Teresa Sarani, as well as Food Street. It runs between Chowringhee Road and Park Circus. The area that falls between Chowringhee Road and Mullick Bazar has especially been a favourite for several years. The people of Kolkata consider it an entertainment zone. It was originally called Burial Ground Road because the South Park Cemetery is located here. There are several cenotaphs and tombs of well-known people from the British era as well as the Armenian gentry.
