About Pune-Okayama Friendship Garden

‘Pu La Deshpande Garden’ or ‘Pune-Okayama Friendship Garden’ on Sinhagad Road is a beautiful place with manicured lawns and well-maintained gardens and fountains to lure you. It’s a garden which was built drawing inspiration from the three-hundred-year-old Okayama’s Kōraku-en Garden, and that’s the reason behind the name Pune-Okayama Friendship Garden. The Japanese garden has also been named after Pu La Deshpande, a well known Marathi writer. A natural flowing canal passes through the garden, which has been channelized carefully across the garden. Visitors have to keep off the grass but walking through the paths also offers a calming experience. Peaceful and quiet, it has been built on ten acres of land. Well planned to please the eyes, the land space changes through the length of the garden with small bridges and colorful fishes playing in the water channels. Visitors can enter the garden with a small entry fee. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that edibles are not allowed inside the garden.
