Cubbon Park
About
Cubbon Park dons many hats: a green lung in the heart of the city that also hosts a library, museums, a tennis academy, an aquarium, a toy train and many statues and pavilions. It’s probably one of the only parks to have a busy road cutting through it. In the wee hours of the morning or evenings, it’s a jogger’s paradise. Spring adds to the beauty of this park, with the lovely and colorful Tabebuia trees in full bloom.

Top ways to experience Cubbon Park
The area
Neighborhood: Cubbon Park
In the heart of the city’s business hub is Bangalore’s most favourite garden. Cubbon Park is a beautifully maintained 120-hectare garden where all the local residents of the city take a break. A landmark ‘lung’ area of Bengaluru, the gardens are dotted with a lot of colonial heritage and charm, which are today a part of the state capital’s political centre. Home to the red-painted Gothic style State Central Library, the magnificent Vidhan Souda built in Mysore Neo-Dravidian architectural style, the neoclassical Attara Kacheri built in 1864 and housing the High Court, oldest museums and GPO in its vicinity, a trip to Cubbon Park is a great heritage walk. Sundays at the park are quite a treat with a plethora of activities to choose from - concerts, fun runs, yoga, tiny farmers market, the list is endless.

This park, along with Lalbagh, can perhaps be described as the lungs of Bangalore city. Location of the Cubbon park is quite good, being right next to MG road and walking distance from landmarks such as Vidhana Soudha, UB city, High court and Visvesvaraya museum. There is amble greenery and space to jog, study the trees and birds, even have meetups of like minded groups. Its also very kids friendly, being close to aquarium, science museum, government museum and art gallery. Quite a few vendors of street food, fruits and ice cream are nearby.

Very peaceful and lovely area. Location is good and the surroundings are even better. I loved this area, wonders for picnic and running. Though there isn’t anything much to do, apart from sitting and talking a walk. If you are here to have some peace, alone or family time, it is a go.

Cons:

It is bit crowded on weekends, so try to avoid weekends.
Don’t go during rain.
Muds are everywhere, so avoid wearing white.
Carry napkins and wet wipes, just in case your clothes or hands get dirty.
You’ll see a lot of people asking you to forcefully buy things and donate money.
We were asked to donate money forcefully as well.

This Park is situated like a heart in the body. It is surrounded by important signatures of the City like High Court, Vidhan Sauda etc. It is very near to the famous M G Road, Brigade Road - the main commercial hub of the City. This Park is the resting place for the working people, the advocates and others.

If you are new to this place, you will find difficult to locate things and won't be able to know what to do and where to go. Navigation is missing, things to do is not shared and highlighted to the visitors. Even toy train facility is also there but no guard was actively working there to show us the way. Better to go with someone who has previously visited this place, so that you can enjoy it to the fullest.

A peaceful place with full of trees, flowers, to define correctly it's a beautiful park where you can relax, go for a jog, spend time with your family and friends, can also do photoshoot. You can also find some snacks selling guys around like peanut. It is more like a picnic point, but please do not litter.

Looking at it as a foreign visitor, it’s just a park really. We literally spent around 20 minutes walking around the park and taking pictures of the library and garden then we left. I mean it’s nice to see a well maintained park in Bengaluru but comparing to the parks in other cities this is an ordinary / average kind of park. If you have a relax schedule you can drop by, if not it’s not a must-go.

Its really nice public garden to sit, relax, enjoy some street snacks or just watch birds. It can be reached by either side (from Vidhan Soudha bus stop or Cubbon park bus stop) and Cubbon park metro station is around 1 km distance. Nice sit outs are available, some attractions like library are available inside but could not explore due to time. I will like to be here again !

I go to cubbon park often with my dog. This has been an amazing experience as there are so many pet friendly people.
Cubbon park is huge and has many other parks to it’s subset.
Sunday the entire park is closed from outside traffic so families can enjoy their time skating, cycling, playing other sports.
Apart from that the main parks, the dog park is a great way to get your dog to the park for social interaction.
