Good for a nice hours break, you get really good views of Mumbai beaches etc. Areas for children to play in look good.

The hanging gardens are nice, but not worth much of a trip to see/ I believe tour guides take groups there because it is handy and free. The view of the Dhobi Ghat laundry from the nearby bridge is actually more reason to head this way than the gardens. The place is set up as a formal garden. I suppose... More

Hanging Garden..... when you think of this place you remember the good old school days picnic. Superb place for a family or group of friends..2 things you should not miss while going there.. the BOOT and the view towards the Girgao Chopaty.

A great repreive from the hustle and bustle of the city. Beautiful gardens and well manicured bushes in the shapes of animals. Something relaxing to do if you have the time.

I was fascinated by the name of this place and forced my friends to visit it. I expected a lot from this place but was not much excited when I visited it. But one thing was worth noticing about this place, its architecture and the in the manner it was built to preserve the flow of water for Mumbai.

If you are from a city known for its gardens, like Delhi, to which I belong, a visit to Mumbai's Hanging Gardens could be a rather underwhelming experience.
