Laid out by Lieutenant General Sir Mark Cubbon this park is located near the Vidhan Soudha and has a number of neo-classical styled government buildings. Over 250 acres of this green park is a joggers and walkers delight. This wooded and be flowered park was laid out by Lord Cubbon, the then viceroy of India in the heart of the cantonment in 1864. Since then fairy fountains and an august bandstand have been added. But the most important aspect of Cubbon Park is its newer buildings that have brought it cultural wealth. No one would be surprised if one refers Bangalore as the garden city of India after have a walk at the Cubbon Park. On a grassy expanse in the centre of Bangalore is this park, planned and laid out by Sir Richard Sankey, the then Chief Engineer of Mysore. It is named after Sir Mark Cubbon, Bangalore's longest serving Commissioner. These are acres of land dedicated to trees, flowerbeds and rolling lawns: which means Cubbon Park has got its fair share of monuments: red-faced government buildings that house the Public Library, the Government Museum and the High Court.
