The crowd starts pouring in from 4 am in the morning. Health freaks find this spot the perfect place to walk, jog n even exercise.
If u r around in the evenings, do try the famous bhaji pav. Although a bit expensive compared to the market, its too good.
Shivaji park ground is well maintained and clean.
They also have a senior citizen park besides a park for the kids.

They say that Sachin still has a net here where he practices. Many great Indian cricketers started their careers here. The ground is teeming with people playing cricket to other sports. Senior citizens enjoy their evening walks. Mumbai life can be seen here.

This is a place which is every sports lovers paradise , in the business capital of India,that is Mumbai. This is the place where every budding cricketer learns the trick of the trade. A must visit place,along with a small Kali mata temple situated at one side.

Shivaji Park to Mumbai is basically Hyde Park of London

shivaji Park (Marathi: शिवाजी पार्क) is a public park situated in Dadar, Mumbai. It is the largest park in the island city. Like the Azad Maidan and August Kranti Maidan (formerly Gowalia Tank Grounds), it is of historical and cultural value because of the political and social gatherings it has witnessed, both in pre- and post-independence Mumbai. The 112,937 square metres (27.907 acres) open space is renowned as the cradle of Indian cricket.

The ground is flanked around its edge by a katta, which is a popular hangout for young and old Mumbaikars alike. On a typical weekend evening it is difficult to get a place to sit on the katta.

The walkway around the perimeter is crowded with people taking walks. The inner circumference of the park is 1.17 kilometres (0.73 mi).

112,937 square metres (27.907 acres) in area, the ground is busy with young cricket players. Various attractions are spread over the grounds, including the Samarth Vyayam Mandir (gymnasium), Shivaji Park Nagarik Sangh (established in 1947), Shivaji Park Gymkhana (club), Children's Park, Nana-Nani Park (Grandpa and Grandma park), Scout's Pavilion (which is a popular venue for marriages), Udhyan Ganesh Mandir (Ganesh temple), The Bengal Club with a small Kali shrine and a library. The walkway is lined with huge rain trees.

The most prominent entrance to the park is the one on the east side, intended only for pedestrians. A bust of Meenatai Thackeray, late wife of Shiv Sena leader Bal Thackeray, has been placed at this entrance. Previously a bust of Ram Ganesh Gadkari was present at the same spot.

[edit] History


Political rally at Shivaji Park, May 3, 2008
The park is named after the legendary 17th century warrior king of the region, Chhatrapati Shivaji. The park was created in 1925 by the Bombay Municipal Corporation, in the days of the British Raj. Through the name, the British authorities acknowledged Shivaji and the reverence his name commanded amongst the local Marathi population.

Besides being a venue for gatherings of freedom fighters in British India, after independence in 1947 Shivaji Park was the focal point of the Samyukta Maharashtra Chalval (the struggle for a consolidated Maharashtra) that led to the present Maharashtra state being formed in 1960. During this period, the legendary writer, journalist, playwright, poet and social leader Acharya Prahlad Keshav Atre led this movement, addressing crowds of lakhs at this ground, earning him the title of "Lord of Shivaji Park". On India's victory over Pakistan in the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965, then prime minister Lal Bahadur Shastri and defence minister Yashwantrao Chavan addressed a Vijaysabha (victory gathering) here. Shivaji Park has been integral to the political gatherings of the local party Shiv Sena, and has witnessed numerous other political rallies
