Malad Creek or Marve Creek is a creek in north-west Mumbai. Located west of Malad, the Oshiwara River drains into it. To the west is Madh Island, and to the east lies Versova. Earlier it was surrounded by a 1,000-acre (4.0 km2) area of mangroves. But now this area has shrunk to 400 acres (1.6 km2) as the real estate prices in Malad went up. Malad creek is 5 km in length.[1]
