It was the first time when we decided that we should plan a weekend gateway or one day picnic for the entire family. So, two years ago when we went to Mumbai, everyone was excited with the idea of going out and spending some quality family time together. My sis-in-law suggested an amazing location for a one day picnic – Srushti Farms. The best thing was its proximity from Mumbai.
It took us approx more than an hour to reach this place. We received a warm welcome with refreshing drinks and amazing breakfast. It is a huge property with all the amenities available for all age groups from toddlers to senior citizen. Our was a mix group of toddler, kid, senior citizens and young couples.
We started with water slides as it was a sunny weather followed by some rain dance in the swimming pool. Then we tried our hands in Archery, Golfs while, kids enjoyed swings.
Post lunch we explored nature trail and took some rest by playing cards and board games. There are many sitting areas made for people who are not staying overnight.
In the evening we went to see there spice garden. The garden was extremely beautiful. Post high tea, we decided to go and check on the boating area which was across the road. Earlier i didn’t knew that the river and boating is also a part of Srusthi farms. Upon reaching the boating we all were tempted to do boating as it was a lovely weather. Luckily when we were boating, ours were the only two boats, and then suddenly, there was a long que of people waiting for their turn. The boating experience was actually the highlight of the entire day.
We truly enjoyed our day’s picnic at shrusti farms.
- Carry a set of clothes if you would like to get wet during water slides and rain dance.
