Things to do with Kids in Pune
If you are on family vacation with the kids, there are so many things to do in Pune.
Kamla Nehru Park : Located in the heart of Deccan Gymkhana, this is the best, public park in the city. It has a large playground area with swings, slides and bars for kids under 10. The gravel surface is not really conducive to playing barefoot but still you see more than half the kids kicking off their shoes and socks before entering the park, and then seeming oblivious to the pokey surface. Besides the playground area which is crowded but fun for kids, there are 3 large lawns, a small fountain, an aircraft model at the north end, and throngs of vendors selling food and cheap toys outside the park. The lawns and benches are good places to park yourself with babies/toddlers. They can crawl around in the grass, and your pre-schooler and you can get some rest from the craziness of the playground.
Chatturshingi Temple: This is a well preserved Hindu temple dedicated to the Goddess Chatturshringi. It was built by Pune’s ancient ruler, Shivaji Maharaj and is located in a central part of the city, on Senapati Bapat Road, right by the newly constructed Marriott Hotel. The temple has 100 stairs to climb to reach the top. The climb with young kids is manageable and fun. You have to take off your shoes after a certain level and then climb a short distance barefoot; as is the custom with any Indian temple for the sake for respect and cleanliness. The hill behind the temple is usually green and a great place for a quiet walk. The view of the city from here, especially early in the morning, is beautiful.
Imagica Snow Park: Imagica recently opened the doors to its latest attraction, a snow park. Touted as one of the largest snow parks in India, this one boasts of real snow made from RO purified water and is completely edible because it is 100% chemical free. Parents of infants and toddlers, hope your worries are put to rest. Play snow basketball, slide down rafts and toboggans, indulge in snow fights, live a fairy tale moment under the snowflakes, groove at sub-zero temperature on the dance floor, go hiking on snow rocks, see what a snow castle looks like, click pictures with amazing ice-sculptures or meet 'n' greet an Eskimo in an igloo. End your snow escapade with a glass of hot chocolate in a snow cafE.
Funky Monkeys Play Center: Head to Funky Monkeys Play Center for your little simians to unleash their energy. This indoor play zone opened in February this year and has already grabbed the attention of kids and parents. Designed for children aged six months to 14 years, Funky Monkeys is great for unstructured free play. A cheerful ambience, vibrant décor, play gyms, wave slides, spiral slides, ball pool, mini carousel, walkway rope bridge and more your children will surely go bananas here.
Gram Sanskruti Udyan (Village Park): This is Pune's first mock village and tries to give visitors a glimpse of rural life. You can take a walk through this park amidst 700 life-size statues of villagers, animals, wells and farms. Each statue showcases a realistic theme or a story around festivals, rituals, governance, education and healthcare. It's a great introduction to the charm of rural Maharashtra for kids.
Shopping for Kids in Pune and Mall Entertainment
Some of the malls that you can hang out at with kids are listed below. Most of these have kids’ stores, as well as things to do for the kids including food and play options.
Inorbit Mall: Close to the Hyatt Hotel on Nagar Road in Viman Nagar, Inorbit has a good cinema that often shows kids’ movies. It also has a Mc Donald’s, cookie/candy stores, and a trampoline outside for the kids to jump on!
SGS Mall: The SGS Mall is opposite Pune’s oldest and largest (and best, in my opinion) grocery store; Dorabjee, on Camp / Moledina Road. A store in here called Landmark has a huge selection of toys and books for kids including strollers, backpacks, etc. The mall also has a maternity store.
Mom & Me: This a new, national retailer for kids and moms-to-be has a good selection of clothes, strollers, cribs, and maternity ware with multiple locations across Pune (Aundh and Viman Nagar).
Things to do with Kids outside Pune
Japalouppe Equestrian Center : Japalouppe is a a horse farm that houses 50 or so horses, along with pigs, goats, ducks, geese, talking parakeets, fish, and 5-6 beautiful dogs. There are pony rides available for younger kids until 11am. A 20-min pony ride around the farm costs Rs. 200 (less than $5 USD). The adults can do horse rides on the stallions for about Rs. 500 per ride or a short lesson (less than $11 USD). The owners are horse riding instructors themselves. The entire staff is very friendly and treat you like you have been coming there for years, even if it is your first time there.
They have a small canteen (cafe) there that serves breakfast food; tea, coffee, hot chocolate, pancakes and some Indian breakfast meals like upma and poha at a very, nominal cost. Bring your own snack in case the canteen is closed or you do not like the menu.Japalouppe is in Talegaon on the old Pune-Mumbai highway. It is about a 35 minute drive from the Pune University. The best way is to get here is by car.
Katraj Snake Park and Zoo: You should know before hand that this is really no match for nicer zoos such as in Singapore or San Diego. In fact it is just about a zoo. It used to be a snake park housing reptiles and rats and has slowly evolved into what it now known as the “Rajiv Gandhi Zoological Park”. What is nice about the zoo is that it is a clean, large, outdoor space to walk around with your little ones. Bringing your stroller along is a must as you will have to walk a fair bit to see the entire park. They have the usual child-thrillers such as tigers, elephants, bears, deer & reptiles.
History of Pune
Pune is the 9th most populous city in India and the second largest in the state of Maharashtra after the state capital Mumbai. The history of the city is closely related to the rise of the Maratha Empire of the 17th and 18th centuries.
In the 18th century, Pune became the political centre of the Indian subcontinent, as the seat of the Peshwas who were the prime ministers of the Maratha Empire. Rulers of different dynasties have ruled Pune. Evidence found as copper plates of 758 AD and of 768 AD reveal that the Rashtrakootas ruled this region at that time. The Pune Gazetteer explains the term Pune as Punya - a holy place.
Pune was ruled by the Yadava dynasty after the Rashtrakootas. Mughal rulers then ruled the city till the middle of the seventeenth century. Aurangazeb named Pune as Muhiyabad after the death of Shivaji in 1680. Pune again gained importance during the period of the second Peshwa Thorala (senior) Bajirao who ruled from 1720 to 1740.
