Local residents are upset with the authorities due to their negligence in maintaining this garden. Greenery has been replaced by soil, this is the condition of Annabhau Sathe garden which was built for recreation purpose. Today, the residents of Nerul east recall the days when they used to sit in the garden either for a get together or for recreation. Children used to play inside the garden.

Today, the garden has become a centre for druggists and alcoholics. People urinate and throw waste at this place which has made its condition worse. Residents are depressed as the garden was once known for its beauty and facilities which has now become useless for them. Residents expressed their concern over the garden’s renovation and requested the authorities to take immediate action. The condition of the garden has worsened in the last six years and despite making several complaints no action has been taken by NMMC.
