Joggers’ and Walkers’ Park, Juhu

As soon as I entered this park the first thing that came to my mind is order. There is a tiny fee of Rs.5 to enter and one can also take a monthly pass. You will see a lot of discipline among the people who come to take their walks. People walk in a particular direction that is marked and you will be politely corrected if you do otherwise.

The park that way is a small one but the landscape is excellent.

There is a designated children’s play area not to large but a neat one with a variety of play equipments. The equipments seem to be in hail and hearty condition. There were not enough children for a Sunday morning, which probably explains the decent condition of the slides and swings.

There is a huge area with plastic chairs laid as if waiting for some inauguration. Later upon asking I was told that those were permanent arrangement and was meant for regular walkers to congregate for their daily exchanges or gossip as they say!

There are swings for the elderly who wish to take a break from there several rounds of walks. There is a mud track for the joggers and a paved track for walkers and those with the strollers.

I saw few people doing yoga on a elevated platform and making lazy poses or they were just lounging under the sun. There’s a gazebo right in the middle of the lawn and I caught a few who were gloriously napping all while the sun was inching up our head. Well it was Sunday morning who can blame them.

All in all I would highly recommend going to this garden, as it is neatly kept and nicely landscaped.
