Mumbai, India

Carter Road & Joggers Park (Bandra)

A good running spot in the Bandra area. Just north of Mahim Bay and a few km west of the Grand Hyatt Mumbai. It’s possible to run about 1.5 km along the road, ending at the modest Joggers Park at the south end. The park is next to the Otters Club. Good starting point is the Yoga House. Best to go early, as it gets crowded: more than 2,000 visitors on a typical weekday! The park jogging track is 400 meters long. It features a mud strip for running and two paved tracks for walking or jogging.

From there, continue south through the Chumbai Village, along the joggable main road, to the Bandstand Promenade, which starts next to Childrens Garden and is a very pleasant dedicated path that runs south for 1 km paralleling BJ Rd. It’s a total 2.5 km one-way from Joggers Park to Bandra Fort and Mount Mary Basilica.
