The Jayaprakash Narayan Biodiversity Park, popularly known as JP Park, was opened in 2006 by the Chief Minister of the state of Karnataka, H.D.Kumaraswamy. The foundation stone was laid by a previous Chief Minister, Ramakrishna Hegde, but development was delayed and it was more than a decade before the project was completed.
The park boasts of 20,000 varieties of plant species, 60,000 flowering plants and shrubs and 5,000 medicinal herbs. The park has three grooves called Pavithra Vana, which will have mini grooves called Nakshatra Vana, Rashi Vana and Navagraha Vana. Apparently, each star in the zodiac constellation has a particular plant/tree ascribed to it. The groove would have plants of every star, rashi, planted. In the deepest corner however, was a school of full grown and vivacious Indian Magur fish, fighting for the grains of food thrown at them by children. The park also had some winged visitors with the common myna, white cranes, snowy egrets etc. being a common sight.
The park administration has left no stone unturned in adding attractive structures and concepts to this park. From pretty Gazebos, to a stone park, bamboo garden to life size dolls of farmers, labourers and cattle, all in keeping with Jaya Prakash Narayan’s ideology.

Jayaprakash Narayan Biodiversity Park Reviews & Ratings
It's the best park I have ever been to - I probably feel so because of how close it is to my house. The place is just VAST.. It is excellent to visit whether alone, or with friends/family/as couple.. Timings 5AM - 9AM and 4PM - 8PM.. Washroom available.. Musical Fountain during evening on Weekends is the highlight.
Cool place. Spend time with family, friends, loved ones. Special attraction is water park which opens evening Time. One of the best ever place in summer to spend on in shades of giant trees in the park. Small suggestion is to explore Swimming pool Very next to the park which has some entry fee and time limit too, but it beats the summer heat within ourselves. One can visit park and spend time throughout the day.
In short is also known as JP park. The entire park is treat to watch. It's wonderful to witness a water fountain. The rock garden is awesome. The park is well maintained. There is also a space to work out and good place for kids to play. There is enough parking space and food is not allowed inside. There are plenty of cat fishes in the pond. In total, the best place to visit in the evening with family members.
Nice place bit crowded specially on weekends. Musical fountain show was the best. Merely a 30 minutes show. But worth it, It was really great, show started at 7:30 PM and runs so long as 6 songs are played. Ticket costs ₹15 per person. It's a nice way of spending time from usual malls and movies.Piece full and Joy full. Park is very nice and clean. There's no entry fees for the park.Very big park with lot of greenery, such a nice place to enjoy with your friends and family, I really recommend you to bring all of your family members here, I had a great time here with my friends! That was really amazing!
Visited this place to see musical fountain show. Reached by 7:15 there and purchased ticket for the show. It was an amazing experience where the colourful light with the water jets were creating awesome views. The show was of approx 20 minutes where they played 3 Bollywood songs and 4 some south language song. Overall it was a nice experience. One cam visit as many times they want because the tickets are very cheap.
