Also this place used to be visited by couple of B-town people. Nowadays, events like Sunburn happens with their outstanding celebrity DJs and I have been here during... More

The race course - besides having its own club house has a bunch of new restaurants - all of which are quite excellent. The Race course itself is nice to view from many vantage points.

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.

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.
