The park, although not fully finished, is open to the public and is gradually becoming a major tourist attraction, even though it is not yet finished. There are several playgrounds, walking trails, jogging tracks, fountains, water sports, amusement rides, playgrounds, sports clubs, botanical gardens, amphitheatres and recreation areas in the park, which spans 80 hectares.
The Kharghar Hills, Pandavkada waterfalls, Golf course, Utsav Chowk and ISKCON Sri Sri Radha Madanmohan Temple are good places to visit near Central Park. Wonder Park, Balaji Temple, Belapur fort and mango garden are other tourist attractions in Navi Mumbai outside Kharghar.
Developed as a recreational space of the highest order by CIDCO, Central Park is a blend of landscape and Urban Design that will stand the test of time.
CIDCO strives to make Navi Mumbai stand out on an international scale with the development of Kharghar Central Park. An ideal balance has been sought between active and passive recreational needs of citizens while drawing inspiration from the Hyde and Central Parks of London and New York, respectively. This unique space aims to merge the idea of these renowned parks with character of Navi Mumbai.
A large open space situated in Kharghar in Navi Mumbai and within the Mumbai Metropolitan Region has been identified for Central Park’s development. It covers an area of around 80 ha in Sectors 23, 24 and 25. In addition, the natural channel running from hill to creek has fully grown trees and vegetation scattered over sporadic locations, creating a virtual ‘Green-Link’ between Kharghar and the creek.
The project development is divided into two phases, Phase-I in Sector 23, Phase-II in Sector 24 & 25. Phase-I of Central Park was inaugurated by the Honorable Chief Minister on 25th January 2010. The park has become a popular destination for families to spend quiet evenings, and further development is looking forward to by the community.
