We never thought in our wildest of dreams that there is another Hanging Garden toughed away in the Dockyard area of Mazgaon called Joseph Baptista Garden, built too on water reservoir between 1880- 1884 in an area of 1.5 acres.
The well know Hanging Garden known as Pherozeshah Mehta Garden is built on Malabar Hills, overlooking the Queen’s Necklace, enjoying the cool breeze from the Marine Drive. The Joseph Baptist Garden is built on Bhandarwada Hills overlooking couple of churches, Agiary and Gamdevi Temple……..some very ancient Kailashpati, Jackfruits, Mango and other trees telling history of the place.
We were surprised to find very interesting tree known as Branching Palm Hyphaene dichotoma and they were fruiting which was a lifer for us.
We decided to conduct our 71st Tree Appreciatiom Walk in this very elusive Hanging Garden on 10th April at 7.30 am.
We invite you all to come for this garden which has some very ancient and unique trees…..
