Pu La Deshpande Garden, Pune Reviews

  • This was a long pending visit and I'm glad that I visited. This indeed is a well maintained garden in Pune. Landscapes are very impressive and thoughtfully designed to relax the visitors. There is a shallow stream of water flows down through the garden areas and add beauty to the picturesque greenery. There a quite a few section where proper seating arrangements are provided to spend time and observe the tranquility. They charge a nominal entry fee and monthly passes for frequent visitors are also available. Park provides ample space for two and four wheeler parking (paid).

  • Very well maintained beautiful park developed with Japanese collaboration. We like it for a casual stroll with kids. It has 800 to 900 metres long running or walking track for exercise aficionados. The area has now been extended with children's play area and Mugal style garden with fountains. Good spot to spend evening!

  • Hey! It’s really good place. Build up in 10 acres of area and you will really enjoy the beauty of nature. Check out the opening time before visiting the place. Good for photography. People come here for roam and morning walk. Having greenery inside and fresh air to breath. You can’t imagine after looking from outside that the inside place is very specious and good for family & friends time.

  • This is an awesome garden to visit in pune. It has huge paid parking space so you can take your own vehicle there. It's on main road only so easily accessible to everyone. All views and landscapes are designed very well and eye pleasant. Children's play area is available. We can walk on path provided and also take break in between inside huts and sitting areas. Everyone should visit this place once at least.

  • Very well maintained garden. It is very clean and scenic. The plants are cut in shapes. Lawn is well maintained. But during the visit it looks like Many Indians don’t deserve it. There were warnings not to walk on grass and in water still many over smart people do that. Unfortunately most of them were looking educated enough to know about the manners and discipline. If they will break this rule what they are teaching to there children. Back to the park, the entry ticket is ₹5. Parking extra. This is must visit park.
