One of the most popular tourist places in Mahabaleshwar is the Mapro Garden. It is located at Gureghar on Mahabaleshwar-Panchgani road which is approximately 11 km from Mahabaleshwar. This isn’t an ordinary garden; it encompasses attractions that would entice both children and adults like a Chocolate factory, a small nursery and a children play area. There is a restaurant serving mouth watering refreshments like sandwiches, fruit salads, strawberry shakes and ice creams.
Visitors can also purchase the Mapro products like jams, preserves, marmalade, toppings, syrups and squashes, from the retail outlet here. Around March/April, the Mapro conducts a fascinating four days, Strawberry Festival.
