Bangalore, India

JayaPrakash (J.P.) Narayana Park

JayaPrakash (J.P.) Narayana Park is one of the nicer green spaces in northern Bangalore for running. It’s just inside the Outer Ring Road. There are numerous paths, including a marked jogging circuit of 1.8 km (1.2 miles). The pleasantly landscaped park includes a rocks park, musical path and fountain, and a small lake.

Add-On: For a longer run, it’s about 1.5 km west to the Indian Institute of Science, where there there the perimeter campus road is also good for running (best to Google Map the directions).

Essentials
  • Marked 1.9 km (1.2 mile) jogging circuit, and some other paths
