Built in 1952, the Kamala Nehru Park was built by Chacha Nehru in the memory of his wife, Kamala. It was an iconic tourist spot in Mumbai city which had the Old Woman’s Shoe, fish ponds, kids games and rides.
The Kamala Nehru Park and the Hanging Garden are two gardens adjacent to each other, often interpreted as one. You can experience the stunning view of Marine Drive and Girgaon Chowpatty from these gardens.
What Other Changes Are Done?
The entrance has been amped up with a brand new pond that has fresh flowers growing out of it along with fish inside. The Ashoka Pillar has been renovated and the Old Shoe now displays a colorful appearance. There’s a brand new ‘view’ gallery that gives you a spectacular view of the greenery, and peaceful ambiance of Marine Drive and Chowpatty. A foot bridge has also been installed internally to connect the two gardens in case parents need to cross with their kids.
