Cubbon Park Turns You Green With Envy – A Photo Essay


Cubbon Park in Bangalore is a slice of abundant greenery. I had heard about the park, but didn’t know it was so green! I remember going gaga over Indranagar’s greenery sometime back. Today, when I walked through Cubbon Park, I could make out that I knew very little about Bangalore’s green spaces. The park is built in a huge area with lots of trees. What I liked the most about it that the majority of the portion is left in its natural state. It doesn’t look like a typical park where a regular maintenance is needed. It gives a feeling as if the canopy of trees has no end.  
  
I have some photographs to refresh you –


Find a glimpse of women chilling out in the park.


Look at the lushness ...


There is a sense of infiniteness... 


See the romance of glistening sunlight ...


Cubbon Park is more about trees and less about flowers, but whatever little you see, it's vivid and beautiful.


There are quite a few Bamboo trees that add an interesting variety in the park.


See the different shades of nature ...


I found the skin of this tree so fascinating and imposing.


A gateway to serenity ...


A squirrel had just hidden somewhere behind ...


Happy twosome ... sharing quietude.


Seshadri Iyer Memorial Library in the park.


I didn't want to get out of the woods ...


I think I spotted cotton-grasses there ... 


I hadn't seen a denser canopy of trees ...


What a pretty fencing!


Even the sky needs some festoons ...


Cubbon Park, bidding you good-bye!


Yes, keep Bangalore Green.


I know this Kiwi Tang has got nothing to do with Cubbon Park, but I added it because it quenched my parched throat after my long green trail.


Are you a fan of green spaces like me? Have you been to Cubbon Park?
