Cubbon park; the green lung of silicon city

Bengaluru: Cubbon park, sprawling a verdant 300 acres ensconced within an urban matrix of arterial roads, seats of legislative, judicial and administrative power, stadium, the cacophony of traffic and the press of bodies, is a sylvan island of peace. Envisioned in 1870 by Maj Gen Richard Sankey, then Chief Engineer of the State, from an initial 100 acres the park spread and is now home to 6,000 trees, medicinal plants, bamboo thickets, flowers and butterflies, in short a small eco-system by itself. Under its canopy, people enjoy jogs and strolls, enjoy family picnics, shoot the breeze, all without littering the place. Such is the mystique of the place that all who come turn conservationists.
