Once a Botanical garden, during the years of service of an English officer ‘Mr. Rye’, has now been converted into a park frequented by picnickers. Lounging over 25 acres of manicured land, the park provides extensive green lawns, that are equipped with swings where the children can play and have fun. Hence it is an ideal visiting spot for the tourists as well as for the local people, to sit on the clean wooden benches, stroll around the tall trees and relax with the near and dear once. Apart from the varieties of trees and flowering plants, the park also has an old Shiva Temple within its premises.
There are lots of temple around this place that you can pay a visit to like Shri Siddheshwar Temple, Koli Temple, Laxmi Mata Temple and Ram Temple. Apart from the temples, the Tiger’s Leap, Lonavala Lake, Bhor Ghat, Kune Falls, etc also lie close to the park.
The park is located close to the Lonavala market and is just half a kilometre away from the railway station. To reach here you can easily get an auto-rickshaw or other modes of transportation.
The best time to visit the Ryewood Park is monsoon and winter season, from June to February.
