Playtime at Bandra's Joggers' Park, new kids zone to open soon!

BMC's Garden Cells unites with urban planners and contrators to upgrade Bandra's open spaces

If you are also someone who is completely enchanted by the spell of the sea-front sunsets at Bandra's Joggers Park, we have good news for you! In an attempt to groom the open spaces in Bandra, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation have decided to give a makeover to the Jogger's Park, and the plan has commenced in full swing with the construction of an all-new, modern and planned kid zone! This will not only help increase the footfall at the park but also enhance the utilisation of the park's play resources, which were scattered, to their full potential.

Planned Layouts for play zone!

The BMC Garden Cells has united with urban planners and ward corporator in Bandra to undertake a project to re-vamp and improve the Joggers' Park, along with two other gardens in the area. This project aims to upgrade public places in the heart of the city, and has been sanctioned a total of ₹8 crores for the same.

The re-development model of the Joggers' Park has been in the civic pipeline for close to three years and the construction of this new play area for kids marks the kickstart of the project here. Urban planners have pointed out that in most parks across the city, the play areas are installed either in a small sandpit, without planning or is arranged in a scattered place which hampers the absolute utilisation of the same by the young children.

However, the upcoming kids zone at Joggers' Park has circumvented this hurdle, with its planned layout and definite playing path. The play equipment in Joggers' Park will have short mountains and tunnels, with a rubber mat and two sheds on either side which will offer refuge to joggers from heavy rains.

Other Attractions at Joggers' Park

The well-maintained pathways and mud-tracks of the park are all set to witness an upgrade. The entire route of the pathway will be ornated with about 12 sculptures of athletes running, walking and exercising. In addition to that, heritage and colourful lighting will illuminate the entire park, said an official from the BMC's Garden Cell.
These initiatives will spruce up the Joggers' Park which is popularly known as the Pride of Bandra. The project will make the park a tourist magnet, boosting footfalls like the Bandstand promenade.
