Cubbon Park is a lush green oasis in the heart of Bengaluru, spanning a vast area of 300 acres. It is a must-visit destination for nature enthusiasts and people looking to unwind in a serene setting. The park owes its name to Lord Cubbon, who was responsible for its development. With over 6,000 trees, the park is a haven for different species of birds and insects.
Apart from its natural beauty, Cubbon Park is also home to several historical landmarks such as the Attara Kacheri, Cubbon Park Museum, and Sheshadri Iyer Memorial Park. A visit to the park would be incomplete without a trip to the Bengaluru Aquarium, which is the second-largest aquarium in India.
Cubbon Park has a rich history dating back to 1870 when it was first established by Sri John Meade, the acting Commissioner of Mysore. Major General Richard Sankey, the Chief Engineer of the State, envisioned the park in honour of Sri John Meade. Initially known as "Meade's Park," it was later renamed Cubbon Park after Lord Cubbon. Over the years, the park has undergone several renovations to improve its facilities and enhance its natural beauty.
