  • We were too little to Mumbai to see so many things. A violent demonstration affected the city, and tourists have had to stay in hotels.

  • A very big ground primarily used for playing cricket. Most of them playing with season (hard) ball. There are multiple pitch layouts for doing net practice. You need to be careful with hundreds of people playing, never know when a ball will fly across. Must visit for cricket lovers. But always crowded. You need to book for the practice pitches. Outside the ground people use for brisk walk early morning hours and at evening. It's a lively place.
  • One of the best ground in the heart of the city. Very popular .Easy access from all over the city .Many famous CRICKETERS played on this ground (since their childhood). Many international players regularly coming here for the coaching purpose.This ground & Gymkhana produces many more International players to the country (Indian team).
  • I have been coming to this park for my morning run/walk since more than 30 years. It is of course made famous thanks to many cricket players who were coached on this ground. It provides a refreshing ambience in the morning. However, in the evening, the traffic is very heavy and the stretch near the Shivaji Park Gymkhana is a nightmare, with cars parked on one side, bikes parked angularly on the other and a steady stream of cars passing through. An occasional bus adds to the chaos. It would have good to have a walking/jogging track within the park. Sections of the road around the park are potholed after every monsoon and the authorities take their own sweet time to repair it. God knows what will happen when the 2 skyscrapers on the perimeter of the park are occupied, and perhaps more are built. This area is like a heritage site, and the uniformity of 2 or 3-storied buildings should have been maintained. There will be no option in the not-too-distant future but to claim a portion of the park for traffic, and in due course of time, the entire park may disappear to make way for more buildings, maybe a mall. One of the major lungs of the city will get choked..
  • Born and brought up near Shivaji park area have seen a Loy of changes and improvement. It have been maintained well. I have been visiting this park on all occasion like meeting friends, for fitness, cycling, birthday parties to name a few. Then the main highlight is Ganesh temple which has a Devin atmosphere and you instantly feel calm. Love this place and will visit it forever.
  • Shivaji park is the place to visit if you live in Dadar area or around. This place really gets his going. You look around and you see hard working people, people trying to make a change in their life. It's inspiring in some kind and refreshing at the same time.

Where to stay in Mumbai

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
