Mumbai is buzzing with traffic all throughout the day, but if you truly want to appreciate the beauty, the calmness and the gorgeous cityscape, head out for a walk early in the morning. Whether you are looking for a good run through a lush green park or a refreshing walk by the sea face, this list will take you through the best spots to run/jog in Mumbai while appreciating the city too! 

Marine Drive, South Mumbai

Marine Drive is undoubtedly the most famous track where runners and walkers like to get in their early morning workouts. Even though it's crowded even in the wee hours of the morning, you’ll be motivated to get in a quick workout too thanks to all the pro runners you’ll see as a part of this crowd.  This airy promenade promises good views, a strong sea breeze and an uninterrupted, 4 km long running track. 

Worli Seaface, South Mumbai

This promenade in Worli is a spacious stretch of running track right by the Arabian Sea. This track offers spectacular views of the sea, a strong sea breeze, and an awe-inspiring view of the city skyline and Bandra Worli Sealink. The best time to run here would be early in the mornings. 

Carter Road, Bandra

This promenade by the sea in Bandra provides a beautiful running track right along the Arabian Sea. The running track is lined with plants and trees, there’s a fresh sea breeze all day long, and the energy of this place early in the morning will get you excited to run the 1.25 km stretch of this running track with a smile on your face!  

Jogger’s Park, Bandra

Jogger’s Park in Bandra is another popular place to run in Mumbai. This well-kept seaside track is perfect for both morning and evening runs. The park has 2 separate tracks – a path for walking as well as a path for running. It’s a lush green space that provides a refreshing break from the city life around. 

Shivaji Park, Dadar

This is undoubtedly Mumbai’s most famous park, made famous by the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Milind Soman and other pro athletes who like to enjoy a run here. Located in Dadar, this park has great cultural and political significance too. The best time to enjoy a run here would be in the morning. Even though it’s full of people running/walking in the morning, the energy here will motivate you to get in a power-packed workout yourself.

Juhu Beach, Juhu

Juhu Beach has always been a popular running spot for those who like their early morning workouts. Empty beaches, a light sea-breeze and a never-ending stretch of sand greet you early in the morning at this spot which is otherwise filled with people all day long. If you're in Juhu, here's another great spot.

Priyadarshini Park, South Mumbai

This park in Nepean Sea Road in South Mumbai is a quiet, refreshing break from city life. Sprawling lawns, a track that is covered with dense trees and a view of the sea in the distance make Priyadarshini Park a popular choice of workout venue, especially in the morning when there is no traffic in this side of Mumbai. 

Nirvana Park, Powai

Located within the Hiranandani Gardens in Powai, this well-designed park is a great option for those who wish to go running/jogging/walking early in the morning. Creative lights and lanterns, a fish pond and sprawling lawns provide a green escape from the hustle of city life. 4 acres of this park offer gazebos, stairways, bridges, fountains as well as a stone running track.

Rajiv Gandhi Joggers Park, Vashi

If you live in Vashi and you're an avid runner, chances are you've run the 2.5 KM track at Rajiv Gandhi Joggers Park. With a running track surrounding a quiet pond, this one is ideal for early morning runs when all you want is the feel of your shoes hitting the ground without worrying about oncoming traffic.

Central Park, Khargar

If you live in Khargar, there's probably no better place to run than Central Park. This massive park has dedicated jogging tracks, a huge amphitheatre, gardens, dedicated areas for sports and a 1.5 km walking track. Plus, it's a public park so it's open to all and we like that it is open both morning and evening.


As of June 3, parks and public spaces have been allowed to open for physical fitness and exercise like running, jogging and cycling. However please be advised to follow the necessary precautions and social distancing rules when stepping out. We also cannot guarantee that all public places will be accessible, please check before you head out.
