The boot allows only for kids below 12 years. The trees and plants are well maintained. Good Patch of flowers in variety of colours. People come in to catch the sunrise and morning walks. Nice benches to sit down. Can be clubbed with hanging gardens.

I've come to this park in South Bombay every time I've visited the city in the last 30 years. The view of Marine Drive and the "Old woman's shoe" continue to be the highlights. Greenery and absence of car horns are also main attractions. That being said, the gardens seem to be poorly maintained these days and the crowds there... More

Worth visiting if you are staying for long in Mumbai. Nothing very special about it. Can also plan the nearby Boot house.

This expanse of greenery in the middle of the city is very refreshing. The area is large, the gardens beautiful and flowers blooming in all colours. The boothouse, is a structure where everyone loves to click pictures or go to the top via the narrow staircase. It may be difficult to manage if you have very small kids, as crowds... More

A nicely maintained park at Malabar hills overlooking the Chowpaty beach. Good to take kids in the evening but overcrowded during visitor season and Sundays.

We were taken here as part of a tour of Mumbai by our son who lives locally. There were lots of families visiting the old lady's shoe, but the highlight for me was the view across Mumbai. Not a 'must see' but nice if you are in the locality.

I & wife visited the Kamla Nehru Park. The surrounding was very neat and clean. Though there were very many visitors, yet the place seemed to us quite calm and peaceful. The interior & exterior of the 'Boot House' was very well maintained. We could view the marine drive area down below, which is referred as Queen's Neckless as the... More
