K Brahmananda Reddy Park is probably the only reserved forest in the midst of a city. This ecologically sensitive place was daily invaded by a large number of enthusiastic joggers and walkers disturbing the flora and fauna. Hyderabad Urban Development Authority decided to carve out a peripheral 25 m wide belt around the park accessible to the public, while restricting the entry to the main park.
The resulting outcome was creation of a walkway garden. The curvilinear path and undulating terrain create a sense of mystery. The winding path never seems to end making the park seem much longer than it actually is. The walk way follows the natural gradient of the land and does get steep at times. Every bend springs a new surprise- a cluster of cactii, a lotus pond with overflowing edges, a peaceful grove of bamboo, a waterfall and perching peacocks, all make the morning and evening walk ritual a different experience every day. The park is predominantly planted with local flora with a few alien species to heighten the colorful environment during all seasons.
