It's the little things

NO HURRIES, NO WORRIES

Entry to the Priyadarshini Park and Sports Complex is totally free. PDP is open from 5:00 am to 9:00 pm and all are welcome to enjoy the beautiful ambience and the modern sports facilities. There are no hoardings or advertisements around to spoil the natural beauty of the environment; nor is there a clock anywhere to hurry you through your leisurely walk around the park.

Built for the long run
Tree Story

TREE STORY

At PDP’s inception, 60 grown up coconut trees were brought in from Nargol to be planted along the coastline. Today the Priyadarshini Park and Sports Complex boasts of more than 300 coconut trees. Step in and you’ll see that it feels less like Mumbai and more like Goa.

Everyday is a gift
Life by the sea

LIFE BY THE SEA

In keeping with the Park's philosophy of "Blending Sports with Nature", the viewing gallery to the stadium is made only with soil - no concrete. If you’re seated at the viewing gallery, a glance over your shoulder will give you a magnificent view of the grand expanse of the Arabian Sea.

SCULPTURE IN THE PARK

The sculpture at Priyadarshini Park that’s been around for ages, is a curious presence. For those who don’t know, it was created by head of Cholamandal Artist's Village and senior artist of Chennai, S. Nandagopal. As one of his most well-known works, it uses his signature beaten metal aesthetic. Titled The Environmental Tree, it is a personal favourite of JRD Tata. Installed in 2002, it was inaugurated by the then Governor of Maharashtra P. Alexander, in the presence of Shri. Jamshed Bhabha. The sculpture was sponsored by J.S.W. as part of the Sculpture in the Park movement.
