Goregaon. Where Concrete and Nature Reside Together.
Legendary origins of its name, conservation hub, multi-cultural, well-connected residential locality. Goregaon offers much to its residents.
Is Goregaon a good place to live?
Legend has it that Goregaon is named after its most famous former resident couple, the socialist leaders and public figures, Keshav and Mrinal Gore. A former MP and activist, Mrinal Gore earned the nickname ‘Paaniwali Bai’ or water lady for her continued effort to bring drinking water supply to the area after the demise of Keshav Gore.
A second unverified but quirky legend says Goregaon was named so after ‘Gora gao’ or white village, a reference to milk production in the area.
Apart from the name, Goregaon has lots more to offer. Like Goregaon East, which is a hub of nature and conservation owing to its proximity to Sanjay Gandhi National Park and Aarey, which bound Goregaon on the Eastern side providing miles of unspoilt nature with unobstructed views. Goregaon is also home to Bombay Natural History Society’s Conservation Education Centre (CEC), which creates conservation program curriculums and conducts biodiversity surveys. There’s more nature to be found at Chhota Kashmir Udyan, one of the largest public gardens and picnic spots in Mumbai, and alongside it, Chhota Kashmir Boat Club, a one-of-a-kind recreational space and leisure boating centre. Goregaon Sports Club has excellent sports and outdoor facilities and NSE exhibition centre provides year-round offerings of leading consumer exhibitions, expos and shows.
Goregaon also features prominently in Mumbai’s pop-culture history, being the home of the city’s largest film studio complex, Dadasaheb Phalke Chitra Nagari, popularly known by its old name, Film City.
Malls, supermarkets, markets, cinemas, star-rated hotels, leading educational institutions and hospitals, public spaces and recreation options, a multitude of residential developments, excellent connectivity via rail and road, and upcoming metros, flyovers and East-West connectivity are the distinguishing facets of contemporary Goregaon.
Goregaon East, the future of new residential development in the locality
While the construction and population boom in Goregaon began from the 1980s, Goregaon East is where all the real estate action shifted over the last 15-20 years. With the emergence of locations like Gokuldham and Royal Palms, Goregaon East eventually transformed from a middle- class neighbourhood into a multi-cultural suburb with mid- and high-income residential developments springing up rapidly.
