After an awe inspiring visit to the exotic summer palace of Tipu Sultan, we decided to have a relaxing time at one of the most famous attractions of the city known as the Cubbons Park. The park which is located in the administrative area of the city is full of aesthetically designed buildings and statues of some of the famous personalities of the world. It is also famous for the rich flora and fauna. Bangalore is known as the Garden City just because of the beauty of this park.
The place excites one and all. Not only the joggers, botany enthusiast or kids but also nature lovers and people of all ages love to hangout here and spend some time amidst the beauty of this place. The park was created in the year 1870 Major General Richard Shankey. The park has undergone many name changes ever since but the people of Bangalore fondly remember and name it as Cubbons Park.
The park houses statues of King Edward, Queen Mary, Mark Cubbon and Maharaja Woodeyar. One can find very beautiful species of many plants specie inside the park. The most renowned spot inside the park is Band Stand which has hosted many rock shows, musicians and concerts. The amusement park for the kids was loved by my kids the most. The Express Ride train and many other games can be enjoyed there by children.
The park is a jewel in the cap of Bangalore. A city which is known for its multi-cultural ethnicity and home to so many IT firms desperately deserves a place like Cubbons Park where one can simply enjoy nature far away from the noises and hustle bustle of city life. The park is open to general public all time and from 5 AM to * Am no vehicle is allowed on the Park Road making it a silent zone.
The visit to the beautiful Cubbons Park refreshed us all. We were also a bit tired so we decided to try some exotic and delicious food of this side of the country. the next place which we visited after this was the Bangalore Palace.
