  • good place.. varieties of fishe, birds, good nature. i loved this place.
  • Please do not visit this park and pay money for "feeding" the animals. It is nothing short of a menagerie- the kinds of places you used to see a few decades ago, when there was no awareness of animal cruelty or animal welfare. It is absolutely shocking to see that such a place can exist in a posh western suburb of Mumbai in today's day and age. There are dozens of rabbits, mice, turkeys, guinea pigs, hens and exotic birds, all kept in small, dirty cages. The animals are totally inappropriately grouped, and are often seen fighting, because cages are too small to allow an animal to escape from another animal. Several animals looked sick, thin, dirty and stained. They lied around completely listless, not reacting to visitors or surroundings. This condition is called "apathy" and develops from severe depression in animals that are confined in cruel conditions. The cages had no enrichment- there was literally nothing for the animals to do, except fight with each other. In the wild, these animals have a wide repertoire of behaviours- foraging, nest-building, socialising, exploring, digging, dust-bathing, etc. Here the animals have been reduced to show-pieces for entertainment, with no respect to their natural state. The birds are all exotic (foreign) and clearly caught and transported illegally into the country. It was absolutely depressing to see such magnificent birds in bare wire cages, instead of in their lush natural forests, high up on trees. The "feeding" of animals is a fiasco. You are given bread to throw to the fish and ducks- who are most of the time not even interested in the bread, since it is a totally inappropriate diet for these animals. Wilted coriander is sold to people, so that they can go and simply throw it into the rabbit cages- what a sham! My three year old son kept asking me "mummy, why are they in cages?". He could not understand why the animals that he has seen in his books and lessons are not in running around in green grass, or flying from tree to tree. I had no answer to his heart-breaking question. This is NOT the way to show animals to our children. They can go to national parks, well-kept zoos or safaris to see animals with the respect and dignity they deserve. The place should be closed down, or at least all animals, fish and birds confiscated.
