The site is frequently used by more than 3 lakh local residents and viewed by more 50,000 people every day who pass by the area. The project is being executed by Ravindra Joshi Medical Foundation, a charitable organisation engaged in health related social causes.

He expressed hope that the promenade would become a permanent fixture in the tourist circuit of the city and a matter of pride for Mumbai.
