Maple, I've been told. I don't know if they are a sub-species. We call them chinar.

Thanks Ulla, yes I saw the "Chinar" name on a different photo. There are many species and sub species in the Maple family including many hybrids. This is however a Plane tree.
Danish name "Platan", English name "Plane"
From Wiki; Platanus orientalis, or oriental plane, is a large, deciduous tree of the Platanaceae family, growing to 30 m (98 ft) or more.

Oh, thank you. I know only the name chinar, and botanic is Egyptian to me. Somebody who visited said they were maples, but she was wrong, then. Unless this is another kind of tree than most of the others in the park. I can't really tell.

It isn't - they are all plane trees. VERY nice to have that settled! Thanks again, John.

You're welcome Ulla. It is the leaves, they are very similar to Maple and also Sycamore leaves. The flowers/seeds differ, the Plane tree ones are round ball shaped, (I used them in the Photo Phun "Pom-pom" blog) Maple and Sycamore have Winged seeds that spin rather like a helicopter blade, one has a single wing, the other has double wings.

I think I've heard the word "eversharp" for those winged seeds when I was a child.
Yes, the leaves are similar. The symbol of Jammu & Kashmir state looks very much like Canada's. :)
