BANGALORE: The Lalbagh botanical gardens will soon have a mini attraction; a bonsai park, probably the first of its kind in India, will be inaugurated during the bi-annual flower show opening on August 9.

The garden will be developed on 2.5 acres at a cost of Rs 1.08 crore. Some 700 private lifetime collections said to be worth Rs 2.5 crore are being donated by expert collector, Mr Srinivas.

The Japanese style garden will be developed in phases and will include waterfalls, a stream, hillock, lawns and a serpentine walk, a pagoda, a Japanese bridge and a lotus pond, according to Horticulture Director, Mr G.K. Vasanth Kumar. A bonsai training institute will also be opened up in Lalbagh and Mr Srinivas will be the principal adviser.
