Heart full of green in the heart of the city.

You can see Cubbon Park in the morning hours is filled with charm of people from different part of India as well as from abrroad with lot of activities without any age group. Well maintained subject to our parks. A green jungle at the heart of the city to keep alive the title "Garden City". Morning walkers get fresh vegetables, fruits and herbal fresh juice like bitter guard, aloe vera etc.

Nature's treat right in the heart of Bangalore

Why to visit? The park is full of freshness, greenery and nature. Colorful trees, flowers, plants and breeze of cool air in the midst of Bangalore.When to visit? The best time is morning hours. Days: Weekends. But I have not visited it on weekdays. Very beautiful on a cloudy day.What are some of the cool things to see? Trees with pink leaves, wooden structures carved out of wood, state library.Kids and family friendly -Yes, I could see a lot of outdoor photo shoot for kids. Families, couples even Pets I could see.Food and Water - Ice creams, Hawkers with corn and Packaged water are there. Even there was a purified water supply was there for thirsty individuals.Parking - Not a dedicated facility for four wheelers. But you can keep it at the entrance or on the right side of the Park, but only on weekends.Overall its heaven for photographers, joggers, nature lover. Good for a weekend visit for 2-3 Hours.

Nature's beauty

Amazing place to enjoy nature. The calm and quiet of the park is spectacular. The park is accessible from M. G. Road, Hudson Circle, Kasturba Road and Ambedkar Veedhi. It's a must visit to understand the yesteryear title given to Banaglore "Garden city" It is fast fading now.

Best Park in India

I am an avid morning walker and search for parks in every city I visit .. And I have not seen a better park in whole of India than Cubbon Park. Located in the heart of the city, it is excellently maintained with such grand old trees with awesome trunks and expanse ... The park is a large one, taken almost 1 hour to make one big circle .. Must be around 4 Kms. And coupled with the wonderful weather of Bangalore, there can be nothing better. Even if I am staying away from the park, I make it a point to take a taxi or auto to do my morning walk there. It is also close to the city centre MG Road and Brigade road and the picturesque Vidhan Saudha and the High court

One of the best park

Lots of greenery, iconic architectures of British legacy. High Court, central library are on the premises. Best to spend some time with books, one's own soul! Was a regular site to go when was living in Bangalore :)

Well-maintained Park

Surrounded on all sides by busy traffic and in the middle of the city surprisingly the Cubbon Park covers a very large area and for that large a park is quiet well-maintained and is a perfect place if you want to go jogging or just hang out with your friends. Lots of places for photography and to create some unforgettable memories.Do give this park a visit if you are in Bangalore :)

Superbly maintained Park, must visit

I judge the city by the way it maintains its park and many parks are disappearing in Bangalore. But those which exists have been maintained properly by the authorities. This is one of the best in all. Must visit to have some peaceful moments. Recommended.
