They’re just not there!
I don’t know if you ever paused to note, but there are no public gardens in Baner. And if memory serves me right, in Aundh either.

And all in all, anyways, there’s not enough parks being built.
And if it’s because builders are in cahoots with the public administration dudes – and this wouldn’t surprise me – then may they rot in hell!
