Very nice and relaxing place to visit

It's a very nice and relaxing place. Plants, trees, flowers, greenery in the city. It was very pleasant to spend time there and as it is on Malabar hill you have nice view of the city. I was just disappointed to reach at sunset because I couldn't appreciate the beauty of the flowers under clear daylight but it had another charming atmosphere. I will try to go again during the day time.

Not much greenery

Ideal time to visit is evening, many park benches were broken and not maintained properly. Food item's are available outside the garden, buses to nearest railway station are available.

A beautiful sight for a nature lover

At hanging you get to see different varieties of flora, the sunset spot is just awesome you are going to fall in love with the place. It's situated in the heart of Mumbai and after sunset you can walk down the stairs to Chowpatty Beach which is located nearby.

Visit in the afternoon

A beautifully decorated and well maintained park cum garden, Hanging Gardens is recommended to all tourists who visit Mumbai. Though one may not find it interesting enough to visit more than once, but Hanging Garden is good enough for a day's visit. It is decorated with foliages and trees. Watch the sunset from here as the Arabian Sea is tight on the other side of the park.
