Say Goodbye To The Gym! Run At These Parks In The City
Want daily physical exercise but gyms are too expensive? We hear ya! Plus, how long can you just run on a treadmill? Whether you want to go for a morning jog or take a stroll during the weekend, here are some lush green parks you can check out.
This park spreads across 15.35 acres and is known for having the tallest park tower (135 ft) in the city. You have a bunch of trails to choose from and you can jog for an 8 km loop inside the park. Loving this? The park apparently has an amphitheater, a bird watching deck, badminton courts, a skating rink, and a small lake! They also have trails for the differently-abled. Entry is free, so jog away! Restroom, parking, and food and water facilities are available.
Location-wise it doesn’t get any better than this park, which is pretty new in the city. Lots of people come here to run mainly because of its aesthetic appeal. There are activities to do as well, including boating, spotting ducks, and even taking a walk by the serene lake. You can see some amazing birds here, too. There is a special pavement for walkers which is about 2 km. Worrying about parling space? They have enough of that, too! Look out for their aquarium and 3D theatre. You can rent pedal and row boats and go boating. You may have to motivate yourself to run when you get there though, because all you will want to do is just watch the sunset and the rays glimmering across the water. You can get a monthly membership starting INR 200.
Bang in the middle of Mylapore, this park has good concrete pavements for runners. The park is a compact, 4-acre space, and has a badminton court and play area for kids and entry is free. It’s super popular among locals, especially because of its location. You can get a morning workout, walk over to Rathna Cafe for a filter coffee and idli, followed by a kutcheri right around the corner. Sounds awesome, doesn’t it?
