Koregaon Park or KP is an area located south of the Mula-Mutha River in Pune, a city in the province of Maharashtra in western India; this area is often viewed as one of prestigious addresses in Pune. The area was primarily a residential area with lush greenery, but of late has been growing into a commercial marketplace. However, old bungalows and parks can still be seen in the numerous narrow lanes of Koregaon Park.

Roads and Connectivity[edit]

Koregaon Park has two major roads: North Main Road (lies in the north of Koregaon Park) which runs in parallel to South Main Road (south of Koregaon Park). Link roads connect these two major roads.
