JP Park / Jayaprakash Narayan Park, Mathikere, Bangalore

The Jayaprakash Narayan Park (JP Park) that has come up at the junction of Jalahalli and Mathikere after decades of delay, has been fortuitously revamped to beget the title of BMP's largest park. There is a rock garden in the park modelled after the one in Almatti.
The park has three grooves called Pavithra Vana, which will have mini grooves called Nakshatra vana, Rashi Vana and Navagraha Vana. Apparently, each star in the zodiac constellation has a particular plant/tree ascribed to it. This is north-west Bangalore's answer to Cubbon Park and Lalbagh. Eighty-five acres of sylvan bio-diversity, green belts of landscaped gardens and a groove that has plants that subscribe to your sun sign.
