I have lots of memories of coming here as a kid and it was nice returning, albeit briefly. Its good to see the place is still neat. Definitely a good place for children and picnics. The special attraction here is the Shoehouse (based on The Old Woman and the Shoe rhyme) through which you can go up. Evenings might be... More

The park is in the posh Malabar Hills area of Bombay, overlooking the Girgaum Chowpatty and the Marine Drive. The park has a small path for walkers and children. Also has a shoe shaped house ("There was an Old Woman, who lived in a Shoe" nursery rhyme, remember?). The views are great, but the shoe is a nightmare, simply because... More

The only place to get awesome views of the entire Marine drive and the beaches. Although a bit too darker at night, it compensates with its scenic views.

Nice place to stroll along, shaded, benches, and lovely views of Chowpatty Beach and around Marine Drive. Worth a visit and on most city tour itineraries.

This park is very peaceful and colourful but doesn't offer a great deal other than the odd attraction for families with children. The large shoe is certainly something we didn't expect to see and it is certainly a tranquil place to stroll for half an hour. The views cross Chowpatty beach and southern Mumbai are pretty good and it is... More
