In continuation to my articles on childrens parks of Pune, I would like to make a mention of the Maharana Pratap Bal Udyaan which is located at Bajirao road (off Tilak road).
Located in the crowded n clustered peth area of old Pune it is an source of evening entertainment for both young and old alike. It serves doubly as a childrens park as well as a jogging / walking track for adults.
It has a green lawn where people can spend time in recreation and 'gupshup'.
Adjacent is the jogging track.
Alongside the track (towards the left of the entrance) is the childrens amusement park where there are swings, slides, see saws etc.
Outside the ground the kids can enjoy horse rides, merry go rounds etc.
The park also holds smaraks for for greats viz. Maharana Pratap, Mahatma Basaveshwara, Shaheed Capt Sushant Godbole and Hutatma Bhai Kotwal.

All in all it is a good place for some evening recreation.
