places in pune

In my last blog post, I had curated the list of indoor activity centres for kids in Pune. Now, let me recommend you the top picks of outdoor destinations where your entire family can enjoy together under the open sky. Just a word of caution again – do check with the facilities about COVID-19 precautions and stay safe.


India’s first and largest amusement and themed park Imagicaa really needs no introduction. If you are a Punekar, it is unlikely that you may have not visited this destination with your family. If you have not yet, then you might want to treat them to crazy rides and themed attractions.

The park is currently offering a flat 30% reopening discount and you can book the entry and food tickets online to avoid the crowd at the counters. Please note that the snow park and water park at Imagicaa are closed till further government guidelines.

Here are some sample reviews from parents, to help you to share your own experiences:

Best classes for mathematics in Erandwane/Kothrud area. Limited kids per batch and give personal attention. We had a very good experience. My daughter is happy with teaching by ***** teacher.

Very engaging and fun filled sessions for the kids .My 8 year old throughly enjoyed all the sessions. Kids get a platform to express their views on various topics. Suggestion is to make this workshop extended from 1 month to 2 months or more.

My child has made excellent growth. The teacher gives attention to every child adequately and my child is very eager to attend the classes. And the teacher also has excellent skills in art.

We have seen ***** school growing from a pretty new school to a developed school in last four years. They focus lot on academics, extra curricular  actives and lot more.  They embed a lot of fun activities with academics which makes kids picks the basics as well as advance topics pretty well.  Teachers are attentive and they provide a very elaborated feedback about the child on quarterly basis. In short it's fairly a good option for kids for their overall growth.

Highly mismanaged branch of *****. Poor planning. No proper communication with parents. Teacher retention is very low. Good teachers gets transferred to other centres. In past 3-4 years 3 principal changed. Everything they do is for name sake. Workshops/ seminars are more of a sales  pitches. 10% return of value for your money.
