Phool Bagh, also called Ganesh Vidyarthi Udyan, is located in the central part of the city near the Kanpur Central Railway Station, LIC Building and Nana Rao Park. The park was known as the Queen Victoria Garden during the British Rule in India.
The garden has hosted several historical public assemblies addressed by some of the greatest leaders and speakers of modern India including Mahatma Gandhi, Indira Gandhi, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Ram Manohar Lohia.
Phool bagh is also a home to the popular Kanpur Sangrahalya and Cawnpur Union Club. The Sangrahalya is the official museum of the city and is an attraction in its own right. Till some years back, the park was well maintained and had many green spaces to its credit. However, it is now used for political rallies and the greenery has more or less disappeared. Its historical legacy continues to be a draw.
