#8 of 29 in Parks in Hyderabad
Sanjeevaiah Park is a public greenspace and park in the heart of Hyderabad, India. Built on 92acre along the banks of Hussain Sagar lake, the park is named after Damodaram Sanjivayya, an erstwhile Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. The park is managed by the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority. The park won the Best Open Landscape Award during the 2010 Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage award presentations. The park also houses the second tallest Indian Flag.DevelopmentThe Buddha Purnima Project Authority, an agency responsible for the beautification and the upkeep of the areas surrounding the Hussain Sagar lake under Hyderabad Urban Development Authority, planned for several new recreational facilities for public access in 2004. A 2.4km aerial tramway connecting this park to Lumbini Park, which is located on the other side of the Hussain Sagar lake, was planned. Water sports, amusement park and water slides were also the planned activities at the park. A few years later, this proposal by BPPA to convert the park into a recreational area was deemed to be harmful to the park's ecosystem. A study conducted by the regional wildlife advisory board highlighted the need to protect the several species of flora and fauna in the park.In 2010, Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority came up with a new proposal for the park's development. While retaining all the environmental aspects of the park, the agency proposed a plan without construction of any concrete structures. Besides water sports, so as to utilise the huge waterfront, the proposal mooted night illumination, water and energy conservation measures. From their allotted budget of for the lake development, a part of it was to be utilised if this proposal were to be agreed upon by the local government.

    Such a beautifully maintained garden. Best for an early walk on Sunday morning. Breezy with a lot of fresh air. And the Flag monument is a wonder. Definitely worth the visit.

    Best suited for early morning walks. Park with well maintained gardens, however ponds inside are flooded with trash and needs some cleaning. Should ban indoor canteen to sell goods in plastic packs. Needs security guards to maintain sanity inside the park during day time.

    So I went to meet my girlfriend in Hyderabad and I wanted to go here to check out "the yacht club". When we reached there I saw the flag and she told me that it's the tallest flag in India. We got out of the uber and the first thing I notice of course is the smell. The tallest flag in India is surrounded by garbage. The "yachts" are floating on garbage. Some men passing by on bikes started whistling and cat calling. At me I hoped because I think I'm prettier than my girlfriend. Next thing I did was call another uber and got out of there. Our beautiful country. So proud of our garbage that we stick a flag on it.

    Not suitable for family. You can hardly see empty seats. Scenic views, gardens, structures but all occupied by couples. One of the best places fr photo shoot.
