Located near Christ Church, this area was reported as being full of dense undergrowth and wildlife in the early 19th century. It went on to hold Shimla's first hotel known as the Royal Hotel which was then renamed as Lowrie Hotel after the owner. The hotel burnt down in the 1930s and it was decided that the hotel should not be rebuilt and instead, a 'Municipal Park for Women and Children' should be built. This was opened on the 6th July 1937 by Raj Kumari Amrit Kaur.
