Mumbai Greens: ‘Coconut garden’ which offers a panoramic view of sealink
A serene view of the beach and sky, a cheerful breeze mixed with the sounds of the gushing waves and swaying coconut palms as well as a panoramic view of the sea link as the sun sets behind it are some of the many attractions of the Veer Ratna Baji Prabhu Deshpande Udyan, better known as Narali Baug (coconut garden), located in Shivaji Park, a zone of silence in Dadar (west).
The garden, along the coast with the sea just 10 meters away, is aptly named Narali Baug as it is filled with 185 coconut palms.
A perfect getaway for citizens bored by the city’s daily hustle and pollution, Narali Baug, unlike many other gardens in Mumbai, has something to appeal to people of all ages.
