This park is nearest from Lonavala station about one Km away from it. Hence this is the one visited first by most visitors. It is a park with various flowering trees in it.

Bhushi Dam:
Ideal time to visit this place is in the month of August. The Dam overflows and fun lovers hate to miss this golden opportunity. The extra water overflows from the staircase like structure. This is like a outlet for the water and this is the point after coming where one feels like being in Lonavala that one has heard of.

At the end of rainy season Maharashtra's Everest "Kalsubai" is visible from here.  After reaching Khandala when you walk a certain distance towards khopoli water electricity centre, you can see a rock oddly penetrated into the hill, that is Duke's Nose.

Khandala Valley:
Popularly known as Khandal Dari or even Canian Track for some. This is the only place which is advised not to be visited in rainy season. The place is favorite of all trekkers.
