  • Smart park was a fabulous outing! The kids were 6 years old, so a good age to enjoy the 22 acres of water harvesting, gardening and animal care. It's a little far off the grid, but once you are there ...  more »

  • The best and practical use of nature and returning back to nature !! Kids will fall in love with nature ! Hopefully shall realize how important is nature and how to conserve. The staff is super amazing and very very enthusiastic and friendly !! They serve all natural and freshly made food. We had a chance to eat red and white pastas , both were amazing , made of fresh herbs and cheese from the animal barn itself. Plus it's totally interactive place. 🦋 Park is super amazing. There's a drink , freshly made lemon mint and mango (could not guess anything more ) for RS 25 a bottle. Games for kids are super awesome , and very meaning ful and full of fun !! Smart usage of water and energy. Completely 0% wastage !!
  • One of the best eco friendly, infotainment places in Mumbai
  • It's a gorgeous park! So many trees and plants. The activities for children are really interesting, and the aesthetic and environment is amazing for adults. They also have vegetable and herb gardens and all the food is organic. All in all it was an amazing experience.
  • This Ecopark is unlike any experience available in India. Designed as a complement to the education at home and school, the park subtly explains concepts and values through participative activities. The park, like any theme park, is designed in "different zones" - each with a different activity and theme. Their multiple forests are a delight as they populate rare species by theme and give children access to the awe-inspiring aspects of nature so close to Mumbai! Every aspect is designed to mean something (even the washrooms!). Even the animal shed is a learning experience as you interact closely with cows, goats and turtles! Without giving away too much, I would recommend this not only for children but as a family outing too. Great staff and service and healthy food!
