Kasu Brahmananda Reddy National Park located at Jubilee Hill, Hyderabad covers an area of 156.30 hectares. The park established in 1994 to safeguard the biodiversity and richness of the area, is named after late Kasu Brahmananda Reddy, the former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. This picturesque park is unique in its own way. It houses the stately Chiran palace of the former Nizam of Hyderabad and also the other historic structures. It is meant to safeguard the greenbelt and the existing variety of flora and fauna. It is expected to prevent pollution, replenish fresh oxygen and recharge ground water. It is also envisaged to be the centre stage for spreading environmental awareness among the citizens. Regular nature camps are conducted for school children and a full-fledged environment education centre is coming up.
Hyderabad is a city that has seen a surge of progress and growth in the past ten or so years. Thanks in part to the decision of the Andhra Pradesh government to make Hyderabad the next cybercity of the new millennium, Hyderabad has become a progressive jungle of concrete and steel, steadily climbing the ladder of global recognition. What’s even more surprising is the fact within this jungle of noise and buildings and modernization, there lies another jungle that is the complete antithesis of the megacity: one that is teeming with life that is more primal and uncivilized and yet, exotically beautiful. This place is called the Kasu Brahmananda Reddy National Park, or commonly abbreviated as KBR National Park, and no tourist of Hyderabad should ever visit the city without checking the park out.
