About Freedom Park

The Freedom Park built on the site of a defunct but historically significant Central Jail is in Gandhi Nagar locality of Bangalore. The park was created by the municipal corporation of Bangalore BBMP in 2008. A competition was held for the creation of the park and the restoration of the jail. An architect couple, Soumitro and Nisha Mathew Ghosh won the competition by completing the park and its restoration. The complex was opened in 2009 to the general public. The history of the Central Jail is quite remarkable. It was built as a jail by the East India Company for freedom fighters after the first freedom struggle of 1857. The jail which is now Freedom Park Bangalore is also famous for having ex-Prime Minister AB Vajpayee and senior BJP leader LK Advani as inmates during the emergency of 1975. Majestic and Gandhi Nagar are the best places to stay near Freedom Park Bangalore. Some good hotels near Freedom Park are Radisson Blu Atria and Taj West End.

Pro Tip: Also, make it a point to check out Cubbon Park, which is one of the largest and greenest parks in Bangalore. It is at a walking distance from Freedom Park.
