Sivaji Park is an urban park in the Indian city of Visakhapatnam. It is spread over 16 acres (6.5 ha) of land and is surrounded by MVP Colony and Sivajipalem.[1] Originally a dumping yard, it was created in 1999 with an initial investment of 8 lakh.[2]

It is one of the most famous attractions of Visakhapatnam. However, The Hindu reports that the park has become a garbage dump with "Overgrown shrubs, broken benches, and play equipment".[3]
