Originally known as Alfred Park during the British colonial era, Chandrashekhar Azad Park is better known as the Company Garden. Located in George Town of Prayagraj, this park was established in 1870 as a significant mark of the arrival of Prince Alfred into the city. Company Gardens was further renamed as the Chandrashekar Azad Park in 1931 after the latter died as a martyr here.

The biggest local park, Company Gardens is a 133-acred green space open for walks, jogs and picnicking. The park houses also massive statuettes of George V and Victoria in the centre of the garden.

Attractions at Chandrashekhar Azad Park

Since the Chandrashekhar Azad Park is the biggest park, it also houses some of the most significant sites. These include the Chandrashekar Azad Memorial, where Chandrashekhar Azad gave up his life.

Thornhill Mayne Memorial, Allahabad Museum, Madan Mohan Malviya Stadium and the musical training organisation of Prayag Sangeeth Samiti are other important attractions here. 

Built in 1906, the Italian limestone canopy-structure of Victoria Memorial is also a part of the Chandrashekhar Azad Park. This canopy used to roof a large idol of Queen Victoria which was further eliminated from the site.
