What Makes It Awesome

Nehru Park is one of the biggest and best-maintained public parks in New Delhi. So, if you’re looking for a lush space for a picnic, or a morning or evening stroll, we say you head over now.

Nehru Park is open every day of the week till 8 PM. It’s spread over 80 acres and has concrete pathways for you to get your jog on. You’ll also find two open-air gyms and, quite obviously, a whole lot of green space to stretch, exercise, and even play a game of cricket or football. What we also love is how accessible it is because of it being so central.  

The park is also great to take your dogs for walks — they'll be ecstatic when they see all that open space, so brace yourself — but make sure to clean up after them and leave the park in a neat, clean condition.

Nehru Park also hosts a bunch of music and food festivals throughout the year, especially once the weather gets colder, so you should keep a tab our weekly events list. Some of the best events hosted here include the Jazz Fest, Palate Fest, NDMC Art Fest, HT Imagine Fest, Maggi Fest and more. However, if there’s no food festival in sight and you’re famished, run over next door to Yashwant Place for amazing momo and other Tibetan, Chinese, and Nepali food. 

If you don't just want to go to Nehru Park, then here's the complete guide to Chanakyapuri

How to reach: The closest metro station is Lok Kalyan Marg on the yellow line and Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus on the pink line. 

What Could Be Better

Nehru Park doesn't have any gazebos or resting places, so if it rains, or you just need to take a breather after your run, you're out of luck.


There’s a dedicated parking area as well, charged at INR 20 an hour, so you can easily drive to here.
