The fruit shape colora and leaves remind me of POMEGRANATE ...
It is * Punica granatum...*

Punica granatum tree may indeed have * spines* on branches...

Since its in a park, May be you can keep an eye on it and photograph
the flowers...

Really!!

The only alangium berry I have seen had many sided angulated
surface......

if its really this ... then the flowers next season will solve the
mystery,
because Punica flowers are distinctive.

good luck

One more species in Maharashtra, but that is a huge climber or Liana..
