The best localities in Bangalore for children to grow up in

Take a look at our list of child-friendly locations in Bangalore before you invest in a Bangalore property.

Children share a really special bond with the homes they grow up in. Their sense of scale and proportion is slightly distorted when they are very young – even a modest 1 BHK home seems like a palatial abode to them! They are possessive about their own space inside the home, ranging from their study corners to their toys cabinet. Over time, they unconsciously build deep connections with their homes.

Thus, it is important to invest in homes in good cities, where children can grow up in with a sense of security about their surroundings. The house you buy must be located in a city with a low crime rate, and it must have potential for future growth. As the parent of a young child (or two), you should consider investing in a property in Bangalore. Here’s why –

1 Bannerghatta Road. This is a premium locality boasting of the best luxury housing projects. You can find top names in Indian realty pitching swanky apartments in Bannerghatta Road. There is ample potential to invest in a spacious flat with separate spaces for your children, and modern on-site amenities like pools and clubhouses, apart from communal meeting spaces. Apartments in Bannerghatta Road also enjoy proximity to large playgrounds and parks for children, as also 24/7 security and well-defined access routes for school buses.

2 Bilekahalli. Another locality housing premium 3 BHK flats in Bangalore, Bilekahalli is known for its upmarket housing projects, top private hospitals, educational institutions, shopping malls and public gardens. There are many good public and private schools located in this area, so those with young children should certainly consider investing here.

3 Indira Nagar. One of Bangalore’s poshest localities, Indira Nagar enjoys good connectivity with the rest of the city as well as proximity to important spaces for recreation. More importantly, it has some really good playgrounds and parks for children, with sufficient security at all times. Plus, there are good hospitals, schools and restaurants here, so you are guaranteed a good quality of life overall.

4 Whitefield. The area has recently morphed into an informal fitness zone – what else can explain the several walking and running tracks, and play areas demarcated for children? Just like Indira Nagar and apartments in Bannerghatta Road, luxury apartments here are created inside gated communities, with easy proximity to essential services and amenities. Plus, the area is full of shaded bylanes and lush greenery.

5 Ramamurthy Nagar. It used to be a haven for affordable housing projects, but in the last decade, prominent real estate developers have created luxury housing projects here. Families looking for properties in Bangalore generally make a beeline for Ramamurthy Nagar for its large apartments and proximity to public parks and cricket grounds for children to train in. The area also has a sizeable green cover.
