This a small park near the main market with nothing much in it apart from a few slides. Just like every other point in Matheran you can get a horse here for riding and go on to other points.

This is a place, where tourists can relax and rest if they are tired due to walking to different points. If you take horse ride to various places, then this can be avoided. Another option is walk uptill this point and continue on horse ride OR end horse ride here and continue walking.

If you are bored visiting points or tired sit there n relax a bit. Its in the market area. So in the evening you can do a bit of shopping. There are few rides for children. A point is also there. But yes too much of red dust.

Lots of games around. Some green spots to sit and play with kids. A valley view for photographs. Don't expect a lot, and you will not be disappointed. A good place for tea and fun.

Average place to go. It falls in the main market area. Can be avoided. For kids some average rides are available

Matheran is a quiet place to visit and relax for atleast 2-4 days. With 4 days, you can plan to touch all the points including this park. Nothing special as such but just ok for kids and family or couples too.

There is a well maintained park in Matheran. The park has joy rides for kids. Teens are just making their best of pics and selfies. The park is best crowded at evening time around 5-6pm.w

The park is near/ opposite hotel rugby and is often used as a pass through if you are heading from the railway station to echo point or charlotte lake directly. There are a couple of slides in the park and a statue of Behramji Paymaster who had been the president of matheran muncipality in 1920's. Can be skipped.

We passed through this garden on our way to Hotel Ashok where we were staying recently. This park must have been a great tourist attraction in the earlier days but what remains now is just a plain garden without much greenery. There is a sitting area in the middle of the park where one can relax and get respite from... More
