About Cubbon Park
This 300 acre park crowned Bangalore with its undisputable title ‘The Garden City’. The park is also known as Sri Jayachamarajendra Park (formerly Meade’s Park). Though the name kept on changing, the elegance and the beauty of the park never changed. Created in 1870, its primary purpose was to elate people with its charm and simplicity, which still holds strong.
Cubbon Park is the proud owner of some of the rare exotic flora. There are around 6000 plants in the park which include 68 categories and 96 species. Other attractions include the statues of Queen Victoria and King Edward installed in 1906 and 1919 respectively. You will also come across statues of prominent people like Mark Cubbon, K Sheshadri Iyer and Sri Chamarajendra Wodeyar.
Surrounding the park are several appealing structures such as The High Court Building, Indira Priyadarshini Children’s Library, City Central Library and the Government Museum among others.
