A vast expanse of green patch in the concrete jungle. People come here to jog or see the racing. Racing happens every Sunday. Worth a visit.

The place has a garden which is open 7-9 am and 5-8pm. There are some expensive articulate restaurants serving great food. The Haji Ali Tomb is a stones throw from this place. The thrilling horse races are conducted from Nov-Mar each year. There is also a horse riders club for amateurs.

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.

Well in this city of concrete, going to the race-course is like a breathe of fresh air. It's a decent place for a walk and you'll find many walkers and runners too. 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
