BANGALORE: The Bangalore City Corporation's Horticulture Department is busy reviving the Garden City’s pride — the Cubbon Park. It has been spreading fresh soil through out Rani park to prepare it for landscaping.

The Rani park, spread over one acre, is being landscaped at a cost of Rs. 1.5 lakh, drawn from the Garden Trust account. The BCC will also plant small shrubs that include both perennial and foliage plants. The flowering shrubs will be planted in areas where there is enough sunlight and in shady areas foliage will be planted.

The BCC is planning to do the same kind of work in other places too. "We are waiting for some basic soil work to be completed on the one acre terrace area, situated between the High Court and Band Stand, where we will undertake a similar activity," Horticulture deputy director, M. Venugopal said.
