We, Mumbaikars are often sucked into the hustle and bustle of daily lives. Due to the infrastructure and the way in which our houses are designed, our pets tend to miss out on a lush lawn to roll around. We underestimate the need for our furry ones who just might want to enjoy a luxurious run in the park or a simple game of go fetch. But worry not – there are a handful of green pastures that you can find yourself basking in the sun, with your pooch! Here are some of the spots you can take your furry one to lounge about:
Yari Road Pet Park, Andheri

It is situated beside Poseidon located on Ashoka Road and is a blessing in disguise for our furry friends. It’s a safe, secure and well-maintained space. In addition to enjoying the picturesque sunsets with your furry one, the park arranges and hosts many events and awareness campaigns. A representative, Meenakshi Thakur, a member of the ARRA ( Ashoka Road Residents’ Association ) mentioned how having a park in the vicinity can also incentivize individuals to keep the place in and around the area clean as well as it being a safe place for pets to unwind.
Dog Park, Carter Road
Safe to say that even amidst the chaos of Bombay, this stretch is one of the most quaint and popular spots in the city. With a beautiful backdrop of the sea, it’s the “it” place where all the pooches reunite with their fellow furry ones and their respective humans. They’re often seen licking, sniffing and vigorously wagging their tails out of sheer happiness and excitement on seeing their mates!
