Mumbai’s civic body, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) developed the 600m long synthetic track in a new garden spread over 15,000sq.m. Besides the sitting area, the recreation space also includes amenities such as sound system and a walkway basketball court, play area for children, and cricket pitches.

Talking about the same, a civic official said the track has been developed with an aim to provide a smooth movement, and hence the construction includes proper facilities for senior citizens, and sports enthusiasts. Besides the above-mentioned amenities, officials have also ensured the use of horticulture and greenery by creating a tree canopy on the walkway.

Developed at a budget of over ₹7 crore, the park is made on a plot reserved for a recreation ground in the Development Plan, and officials from BMC took almost a year to develop the same and it was completed in February.
