Top 15 Children’s Parks in Bangalore

While a lot of children’s parks in Bangalore need attention, the quality and standards of some of the parks will take you by surprise. We’d like to give a big shout-out to the local bodies & authorities to make this city a better place for children.

Here’s a list of parks that we’d like to call the best parks of Bangalore:


1. Nandavana (4T Block) Children’s Park, Jayanagar

This is one of the newest parks in town managed by the BBMP with 14 different pieces of play equipment. The centre of attraction is a light fountain in the centre of the park that comes on at 7:00 pm and looks like electric fireworks!

At the entrance they request children to remove their shoes either because they don’t want the equipment to be damaged or because they’re worried that children will slip if they climb on the equipment with flip flops and flimsy footwear. We recommend that you carry a pair of socks if you don’t want their feet to get too dirty and maybe also a bag to carry around their shoes so they don’t get misplaced.

To grab a bite or for an emergency bathroom break there’s a Café Coffee Day across the street.

2. J. P. Park, Mathikere

This is a large park with the play area divided into 3 sections and has a variety of equipment for all to play. A small rock garden, with steps and seating areas made of broken glass pieces is a noteworthy attraction of JP Park. The large pond with fish, which come near the shore to gobble up food thrown by the visitors, is yet another thing to experience.

This park has a nice and wide walking trail, where you can find many visitors running and jogging. Many elders also walk at a leisurely pace, soaking in the abundant greenery all around. Close to the entrance of this park are big statues of animals and humans, which serve as the ideal backdrop for many a photo taken by the visitors.

The musical fountain which is open on weekends is the focal point of this park. Be ready to wait in a long queue though. One of you can volunteer to stand in the queue while the rest head to make a round of the park. There are two shows – one at 7.00 pm and another at 7.45 pm, each is 30 minutes long. Mostly local songs with peppy beats are played with a rare Hindi or English number. Be sure to grab a good seat in the higher rows to enjoy the show to the fullest and click good pictures/videos.

4. R. V. Road Children’s Park, Chandavalliya Thotta, Jayanagar

This is a hub for kids in the area with a good number of play equipment for each child to find something to do without having to wait in line. There are a variety of slides from small ones suitable for 1 year olds to higher and larger slides for older kids. A good collection of swings, a rope ladder and a horizontal ladder are available for the kids as well. A sign in the park says that it is open only to younger kids up to 5 years old, but older children are not restricted from entering and playing.

Like a lot of newer parks in town, it is floodlit so kids can play well after sunset. The wonderful tree canopy shades it in the day so it’s great to play even in the middle of the afternoon. A walking area, benches and gazebos are in the adjacent parks to the north and south for adults. These are a part of the gardens all along R.V.Road. The park is open throughout the day though the children’s park has a separate entry with timings. There is a small internet café across from the entrance run by a kind old gentleman, who also stocks juice boxes and chocolates – perfect for a pick-me-up for the kids after tiring themselves out.

7. Jawahar Bal Bhavan, Cubbon Park

Cubbon Park sprawls over an area of about 300 acres and is a jewel among the green spaces of our Garden City. The children’s play area – Bal Bhavan – has a variety of slides and swings in addition to large open areas for children to run around. The Putani Express toy train ride is a long-standing Cubbon Park tradition and is open to children and their parents. An added attraction is the Government Aquarium located nearby. Cubbon Park’s morning “no vehicle” policy makes it an ideal safe cycling space for children.

There’s a separate section inside the park which you can reserve for birthday parties and is well equipped with a few play equipment like swings, slides, see-saws, etc. primarily for younger kids aged 2-5yrs. The public toilet available on site is not recommendable. It’s preferable to head to a restaurant or cafe nearby.

8. Kuvempu Park, BTM Layout

The play area at this park is on the smaller side with a limited amount of equipment, some of which also may need a few repairs. The park is beautifully laid out with animal sculptures – giraffe, elephants, peacock, deer and a dinosaur too! No wonder that it is famously known as the “zoo park” by many kids.

The walking park is beautifully maintained and the ground extents are quite large. There is a fountain on site, but it’s not clear what hours it is turned on. There’s also a spacious gazebo right at the centre of the park for you to relax or take a break.

9. Lakshmi Devi Children’s Park (6th Block), Koramangala

This park is not to be confused with the one of the same name on 80 Feet Road, Koramangala. This park is a fairly large space with plenty of room for kids to run around. The equipment may look a little worse for the wear but is in good shape. It is a nice park to hang out at in the evenings and maybe indulge in a hot butta near the gate before heading back home.

11. Science Park, Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium

Let your kids examine the structure of a DNA strand, look though an optic tree, whisper to a giant dish and play in around the molecular structure of a crystal! Your child may not yet recognise the science and concepts behind the many unique play pieces at the Nehru Planetarium Science Park, but that’s definitely not going to come in the way of them having a whole lot of fun.

This park makes it very convenient to keep the kids occupied while you wait for the start of a show at the Planetarium, or for one of the adults in the group to entertain a younger child not allowed into the sky theatre while the older kids watch the show.
You can also hop across the street to see the Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain if you are there in the evening. There is a play area and open space to run around too. If the little ones get hungry for a snack or need a refreshing drink, there is a Nandini stall in the science park campus.

This is a simple but very well-maintained park and has a beautiful Ganpati temple inside the park. The equipment is basic and typical of city maintained play grounds. Space is plentiful so kids can run around freely. This park may not be on a lot of parents’ radars, but it is worth checking out.

There are two entrances to this lake front park maintained by BWSSB and the BBMP – one from Malleshwaram and the other from Sadashiv Nagar. Enter through the Malleshwaram side to witness the buzz and excitement of activity around the children’s park filled with various play equipment like swings and slides.

The trail along the lake edge is a favourite with walkers and children who love to see the ducks and pigeons. There is also the recent addition of a yoga enclosure which is open both in the mornings and evenings. If you need a snack, tasty bhel puri and ice creams vendors are available near the entrance.

15. Mini Forest Children’s Park, J. P. Nagar

This is a linear green space just east of Bannerghatta Road (behind Gopalan mall) divided into 3 separate parks, one of which is dedicated for a kids play area. The other two sections are dense green spaces sprinkled with a good number of benches to lounge around. The parks are well maintained and kept clean. There’s an MTR located just across the street if you’d like to catch a quick bite or a nice hot cup of filter coffee.
