Parking is not an issue. Don't know if it's allowed on daily basis for joggers. If yes, then perfect place as it has lot of open space, greenery n... More

If you love open band green spaces then this is the place to come. It's open for walking,jogging and exercise. Lot of ppl take karate yoga and other classes there. Best time to visit is early morning around 6-7. On winters you can see race horses practice n in full speed at distance of 20 feet. Worth watching.

Interested to see horse-races? ot only the rich and VIP Mumbaikar likes it, but also the middle-class and even poor people go there to gamble! Such a huge difference just in few meters distance, but - very clear - there is a separation: the Club Members (the rich ones) and the Non-Members sit and gamble in different tribunes.

You must always make way for the horses and keep out of their way at all times. I have never been for the races, but maybe you'll enjoy... More

Mahalaxmi to me is synonymous to eating at Totes's... the most amazing flavorful awadhi biryani's .. the absolute magic in mouth of flavors that make your moan and groan with gastronomical pleasure... !!
