No other park in Mumbai can boast of being as large and as well-known as Shivaji Park in Mumbai. Located in Dadar, Mumbai, it is an important area in the greater Mumbai. Named after the celebrated Maharashtrian warrior, it has great values both historically and culturally. It had experienced many political agitations before and after the Independence. Many important landmarks of Southern Mumbai like Gymkhana club, Nana Nani Park, and many others are located near the Shivaji Park. The most prominent feature of the park is the huge statue of Shivaji made of stone, located in the middle of the park and surrounded by the railings.
A Long time ago, local people donated money in order to erect the magnificent statue. The park is surrounded by huge cricket ground where the little cricketers practice for long durations. It is a perfect place for catching a sunset or hanging out on a date. Beautiful breeze persists in the air because of the close proximity of the western Arabian Sea. Rarely can such a big ground as Shivaji Park be found in Mumbai.
