The leafy Alipore neighborhood is another choice area for a run in Kolkata. The wide sidewalks, interesting architecture, and spacious parkland make for a fun running tour. Top sights include the Agri Horticultural Society of India, the National Library, and the Vijay Manzil (Burdwan Rajbari – historic royal mansion). We’ve mapped a 6.3 km figure eight route around the neighborhood that travels some top roads and sidewalks, passing impressive Colonial-era buildings. If you prefer not to run on the road, the area around the National Library and the Horticultural Society of India is perfect for some laps.
Longer Run: It’s also easy to connect to the paths of Maidan Park by crossing over the Alipore Bridge.
