The park has few flower beds and mostly features bushes and hedges carved into the shapes of animals. As per history, the garden was built over... More

The park was formed to hide the water tank/ underground reservoir underneath - that's the reason why you won't see any mature / large trees! That said it is a nice place to visit as its a green haven which is a complete contrast from the rest of Mumbai. There are many flowers which attract a variety of beautiful butterflies,... More

The park is nice and I remember it for two things. One, that it had very nice bushes all over the place trimmed to resemble various animals and this brought a certain edge if ingenuity. Second, the entire park is built on top of gigantic water tanks that used to be open many years ago. Because of the vicinity with... More

It is built on three reservoirs of water. Over here, Topiary has reached a fine art with its unique animal... More

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
