At a distance of 2 km from Mysore Railway Station, Freedom Fighter's Park is a public park located in the Chamrajapura locality of Mysore, Karnataka. Also known as Subbarayanakere Park, it is one of the places to visit in Mysore.

Freedom Fighter's Park was built to commemorate the 'Mysore Chalo' movement, one of the most significant events in the history of Mysuru which resulted in the establishment of a democratic government in Mysore. Freedom fighters assembled at this very spot, launching a resistance movement when the Maharaja of Mysore retained the rule of the state. As a part of the protest, the Indian flag was hoisted every day at this park by freedom fighters, which eventually made the Maharaja surrender to the demand for democracy in 1947.

It is a huge park known for its unmatched beauty, lush green lawns, and bright flower beds. The major attractions of the park are the captivating and magnificent statues of the freedom fighters including Mahatma Gandhi. The park also has a separate play area for kids and space for yoga, meditation, etc. Revisit the scenes of India's struggle to become a democracy amidst nature's beauty at this park as part of Mysore tour packages.
