  • It is situated in the heart of Mumbai, by the sea shore. It has a huge statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, riding on his horse. It's a cool place to hangout, jog, relax, you can see crowd of all ages in morning and evening. Surrounded by peace loving neighborhood visited by a decent crowd, this place appears pleasant all the time. It has a peaceful environment, which is good for meditation. You can find young couples sharing enjoying their golden moments and by the same time, few oldies recalling their golden past here. A few will also be demonstrating their balancing skills using football. There are various fast food centers and restaurants here, which are open till late in thw night. No matter at what time of day or night you may visit, you will always fall in love with this place.
  • Bal Mohan School uses these grounds for the school activities and Sachin studied here and thus got his initiation into cricket! Today the ground is used for sports events, political rallies, friendly neighborhood cricket and football matches and also meeting place for friends. On the outskirts of this ground are Temples, Marriage halls, Clubs, exhibition area, street hawkers, Cafe Coffee Day, Barista, Tibbs Frankie and in the morning there are morning walkers and the fresh energy drink vendors. Its a pot pourie and a great place in the evenings - there is a lot of hustle bustle, traffic jams around ...but hey its the heart of Mumbai! Do visit and if your stomach can stand it...try the street food ... its value for money !!!
  • This place is famous for Sachin Tendulkar childhood cricket practice, Dussehra Railly of Shree Balasaheb and headquarters of Shivsena Name is Shivsena Bhavan.
  • One of the rare green patch of Mumbai city, also famous for grooming cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar, Gavaskar , Rahane! Also located near sea, small quint little bylanes.
