Cubbon Park was originally created by Major General Richard Sankey, in 1870, during his time as the Chief Engineer of the Mysore State. The plenteous flora and fauna orchard mingled with many historic buildings nearby gives the park a vintage look. The park was first named as Meade’s Park in 1870. Later it was renamed as Cubbon Park following the name of Sir Mark Cubbon, who served for the longest period as the Commissioner. In the year 1927, once again, the park was renamed as Sri Chamarajendra Park. The renaming was done as a tribute to the ruler, Sri Chamarajendra Wodeyar.

The topography of the park has a unique outlook, with groves of various trees, flowerbeds, bamboos, and some monumental statues. Cubbon Park contains many flowering plants that cover a major area of the park. Even though the park is situated amidst the cyity, the grasslands, trees and flowering plants are well-maintained.

The park is a storehouse of a variety of species of plants and trees that contain many inherent species of plants. There are a variety of ornamental and exotic silver oak trees that are found in arrays on the roadside parks. The trees also include Gulmohar trees that are widely grown in the park.
