About Cubbon Park

Cubbon Park is a vast expanse of greenery right in the heart of Bangalore city’s administrative area, this Garden gets Bengaluru the name ‘Garden City’. The park was once called as Meade’s park and then changed to Cubbon Park after the longest serving commissioner of that time Sir Mark Cubbon. It was later renamed as Chamarajendra Park after the King Chamaraja Wodeyar under whose period the park was totally established.

This park is a wonderful collage of thick forest patches amidst lush lawns and rock sculptures. It wouldn’t be wrong to call 300 acres of greenery of Cubbon Park and Lalbagh Garden as the lungs of Bangalore. Trees planted in the park include Gulmohar and Silver oaks. Comfortably motor able roads snake through the park along with lanes of walkers’ path. The Cubbon Park roads remain closed to vehicles on Sundays for whole day. Also on Sundays a dog social is organized in one of the areas of the park. 

Cubbon Park is administered by the Department of Horticulture and they have done a very good job so far in making this park a morning destination for not only people living nearby but also far out areas of Bangalore. 

This haven of green in the middle of hustles of the city is a nature lovers’ and walkers’ paradise. Every morning and especially on Sundays thousands of citizens come to the Cubbon Park to rejuvenate and walk in fresh early morning air and relaxing environment.

Places to see near Cubbon Park include the State Central Library and The Bangalore Aquarium right inside Cubbon Park, the Karnataka high court building. MG Road and Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum are also nearby.

Make sure you park your vehicle in designated areas or traffic police would tow away the vehicle once traffic opens at 8.00 AM.
