Cubbon Park Morning – I shouldn’t be spending way too much time writing this with my exams stacked up on my back. But anyway, I promised myself I won’t take long. I’ve visited many places in Bangalore and this park shall be my favorite in the city.
So take a minute break to give this piece a little love. So here’s how it went-my Cubbon Park morning walk!
I went to this Cubbon Park morning in Bangalore about a month ago, but I still can’t get its peaceful environment out of my mind. If you’re lucky, visit it on a Sunday morning to visit the Cubbon’s Dog park – that’s another paradise.
To be honest with you, it’s like any other park out there. It’s how one visualizes an ideal park on an ideal morning.
Imagine this – A touch of cool breeze with visible mist around the park. No sound of boomers talking or cars passing by. The only sound that you do hear would be the trees merrily swaying their branches and birds chirping.
Yep, that’s exactly how the place is. I did find a couple of boomers there, but believe me- they were quiet.
Renting Bicycles in Cubbon Park
One can ride their bikes in the park after 8 or get a rental. It’s also one of my favorite cycling trails ever since I got my own. Back then, I went there with some friends and we rented bicycles. It cost us 25 rupees for 2 hours per bicycle.
Before taking our bicycles out, we submitted our ID info. It can be;
- Driving Licence
- Any other photo ID proof.
When renting out the bicycles get them before 8 am. It’s the time when the road gates open up for vehicles – The time when everyone gets out of the road and lets the cars conquer it. We got there late so we had some trouble crossing roads with the bicycles.

We took these bicycles inside the main park where some people were still enjoying their morning. Most were old and many had their dogs with them.
Dogs in the community
I love dogs. Thus the place was a paradise to me. There were German Shepherds, Poodles, Pugs, and all the other cuties. The German shepherds and Labradors played fetch with tennis balls and sticks.
The Pomeranians just enjoyed their strolls with their owners while a man cuddled with his pug under the trees. This was a community of people by itself. One nature-loving community!
I met a man in his fifties playing with his German Shepherd – Simba. I went to play with him too. Before I made it there, Simba leaped pushing me back a few steps. So much for a Cubbon Park morning walk.
It was fun with mud stains of its paws on my pants. An old man with greying hair was passing by with a poodle. He looked at Simba and waved at this man and said, “Simba seems energetic today.”
This man replied, “Yeah, he’s unusually energetic this morning.” Then he turned to the old guy’s poodle, “Hey Becca!”
Becca, the poodle, wagged her tail a bit and pranced on with her old man. I mean, who wouldn’t love visiting this place!

Cubbon Park Morning Walk – and wandering in deeper
Simba calmed down and settled to chewing its tennis ball. So I left Simba alone and walked deeper into the park alone. My friends were more interested in taking pictures of themselves.
As I walked in around the corners, there were a few people here feeding crows.
They had seeds in their hands and were scattering them out on the ground and a murder of crows gathered to feed on them. These people were all around the park. I’ve never fed a crow before, so I don’t know if it’s that enjoyable.
But they seemed too engrossed in it. In fact, there were also some crow-food sellers inside the park.

Museum near Cubbon Park
After a few hours, I walked back and found my friends in the same place I’d left them with their cameras. Luckily, they’d been aware enough to keep my bicycle with them.
We decided to return the bicycles and have our breakfast. We found a modest little restaurant right behind the cycle rentals. We got idlis and decided to go to a museum nearby. Ah, but that’s another story. I can’t tell you that right now. Let that be another adventure for now- another piece.
I’ll let you know when that comes up later, nothing to worry about.

Anyway, one last thing- when you’re going out there, it’s advisable not to carry your camera. One of my friends was stopped by a security person near the park’s entrance while returning.
He told him that we weren’t allowed to photograph inside the park. He gave him a warning and let us go with ease as we were students. However, most of the pictures taken on this blog are from my phone.
That’s all I’ve to contribute from my Cubbon Park morning walk!
