Park 67

Park 67, one of the most iconic landmarks of IIT Kanpur, continues to adorn the institute’s landscape. Spread over an area of 2 acres, the park has been aesthetically designed. Its concrete walkways for walkers and joggers, and cemented red benches beautifully blend with the wide expanses of green turning it into an ideal recreation area for the campus residents. It is also a home to rich flora and fauna. Amongst the numerous trees that beautify its precincts are Bottle Palms, Neem, Peepal and Blackberry. The flowering plants of Hibiscus, Marigold, Nerium, Bougainvillea, Rose and Tabernaemontana further add the brighter hues of red, orange, yellow and pink to the green scenery. The park’s easy accessibility from the main road makes it more popular especially amongst the elderly who are often found strolling along the winding trails or peacefully relaxing and enjoying happy conversations. The most exquisite feature of the park, however, is the magical banyan tree that stands tall at the park’s entrance greeting every visitor and passerby. With its vast canopy, dropping down roots and sprawling branches, it creates a magnificent structure that is perhaps symbolic of the institute and its alumni who are spread out across the globe making great strides in their respective fields and in turn replenishing the foundations of the institute in myriad ways.

Named after its benefactors, Park 67 is a testimony of the alumni’s relevance in the life of their alma mater.
