Of historical and cultural value because of the political and social gatherings it has witnessed, both in pre- and post-independence Mumbai.

The park is named after the legendary 17th century warrior king of the region, Chhatrapati Shivaji. The park was created in 1925 by the Mumbai Municipal Corporation, in the days of the British Raj.
