From Children gardens to famous parks, Mumbai has a huge list which has special Botanical gardens, Zoo, National Park, Amusement parks.
My favorite is The Hanging gardens, in Mumbai, also known as Pherozeshah Mehta Gardens, are terraced gardens perched at the top of Malabar Hill, on its western side, just opposite the Kamala Nehru Park. They provide sunset views over the Arabian Sea and feature numerous hedges carved into the shapes of animals. The park was laid out in 1881 by Ulhas Ghapokar over Bombay’s main reservoir, some say to cover the water from the potentially contaminating activity of the nearby Towers of Silence.
Indian Style of Garden:
The fact is there is no Indian style of garden design. Everything is adopted and borrowed from different style. Oldest styles that still exists are Mughal style. Mostly old government controlled, palaces that turned to museums have Mughal style of gardens with a bit of contemporary mix up off late. City squares also or large junctions use to be Mughal style that morphed into a not so focused style while town planner experimenting with Chinese to many different styles without any focus. However there are many large parks that exhibit different styles of garden within one premise.
Many gardens would have planned for ficus bonsais that have grown into trees in absence of proper care.
