The actual name of the park is Pu La Deshpande Park, considered the largest Japanese part in the world outside of Japan. When I first visited, I was taken a back by its beauty. Every brush and flower appeared very manicured and neat. Since the park was only a 10-minute walk from where I stayed just off Sinhagad Road, I would go there nearly every morning for a run. Sometimes I would practice yoga on the low tables within the resting area that contained a narrow picnic bench near a small waterfall. Visiting the park became another peaceful get away, from the busy life in the city.
