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

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.
