Cubbon Park: Named after Sir Mark Cubbon, Bangalore's longest serving Commissioner, Cubbon Park
was planned and laid out in 1864 by Sir Richard Sankey, the then Chief Engineer of Mysore.
Flower beds, large lawns, shady trees all make this an ideal place for both morning workouts and the casual evening stroll. The Park is also home to several classical buildings like the Attara Kacheri (the Karnataka High Court) the Visveswaraya Industrial and Technological Museum, Government Museum, Aquarium, Venkatappa Art Gallery and Seshadri Iyer Memorial Hall. An amusement park called the Bal Bhavan also exists here.
