Nehru Park

Nehru Park is one of the leading areas of greenery in Delhi. Spreading over an area of 80 acres, it was established in 1969 and named after Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India. Known for its verdant beauty, it is a very popular area for picnic goers, walkers and health aficionados. A cheerful lawn sprawls across the complex, occasionally gathered up into small hillocks to prevent monotony, and is scattered with brightly blooming flower beds containing a multitude of flower varieties. To add a quirky touch, stones artistically arranged in choice location around the park are engraved with famous quotations from Nehru.

The Nehru Park is also known for being the venue for the Morning Ragas and the Evening Ragas, which are organised every week on Sunday and taken part in by famous Indian vocalists and musicians. It also hosts the SPIC MACAY (Society for the Promotion of Indian Classical Music And Culture Amongst Youth) concerts and the annual Bhakti Festival as well as an assortment of yoga and exercise classes, art events and contests and even some sports events. The Park also has a life size statue of Vladimir Lenin, and is the location where Marxist parties of India gather to commemorate Lenin’s birth anniversary. The Park also houses an ancient Shiva Mandir and a small cafe.

The Nehru Park can be found in New Delhi in the Chanakyapuri Diplomatic Enclave.
