KBR Park in Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad - The Morning Walkers' Paradise


Entrance Gate
KBR Park located in Jubilee Hills, Hyerabad is one of the most crowded places in the mornings. In fact it is the Morning Walkers' paradise and everyone love going to this place early in the mornings for a walk. If you happen to visit this place in the morning, you can see long lines of cars parked on either side of the road. With great difficulty you will find a parking lot here in the mornings.

It's a dream for many ladies of the upper middle class and elite to drive to KBR park for a morning walk. People these days have become too health conscious and morning walks are the best exercise for such people. The entire area has ups and downs which helps in developing endurance. The walkers literally sweat a lot and shed weight when they have a walk here. There is a walk way encircling the park outside so that walkers can go round the walkway even when the park is not open for public.

There is long walkway inside the park as well but you need to get an entrance fee for entering into the park. Early in the misty mornings you can listen to the screams of peacocks / peahens and most of these come out to walk on the road side. 
Kasu Brahmananda Reddy Park popularly known as KBR Park is located in the heart of the city at the conjunction of Banjara Hills and Jubilee Hills. The park is named after Kasu Brahmananda Reddy, ex-Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh (before the state bifurcation).

The park was established in 1994 in view of protecting the rich biodiversity of the area. It is spread over an area of 156 hectares in Jubilee Hills. It is well maintained and in fact KBR Park is the Paradise for morning walkers.

Added to morning walkers, on one hand you find many vendors who keep selling health juices / drinks to the health conscious people while on the other hand there are road side green grocers literally sitting in a row on the roadside walk way selling fresh green leafy vegetables and green vegetables. It's like two birds at one shot for the morning walkers. After they finish their walk, they can purchase fresh vegetables at the same place which saves lot of time for them.
So, if you happen to visit Hyderabad, don't miss this wonderful morning walkers' paradise to enjoy the nature in the heart of the city.

Recently GHMC (Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation) has planned to fell over 3,000 trees in this centrally located park to make way for the SRDP (Strategic Road Development Plan). The Walkers' Associations took rally to protect the green cover of the park and now the NGT (National Green Tribunal) got involved in this issue.
