Beautiful parks in Mumbai with pictures:
Here is a list of the best parks in Mumbai.
This is one of the oldest gardens in the city, built and named after the cross that was placed here during the Portuguese rule. Where the original Cross once stood is now a school whose children are avid park users. The maidan was originally part of the Esplanade, the name of the gathering area of the Oval maidan, Azad Maidan, Cooperage ground and cross maidan. The maidan’s glory has waned somewhat as the mounds of rubbish now adorn its southern end. Maintenance is also lacking something. However, the historical context was enough to prevent this park from turning into another residential area.
Horniman Round Garden:
The garden covers an area of 12,081 square yards and is located in South Mumbai. The park and its surrounding area are named after Benjamin Horniman, editor of the Bombay Chronicle. The garden itself is beautiful, although not well maintained. It is also used to host many well-known functions.
