A big-time love for the nearby embassies in Chanakyapuri is Nehru Park, one of the famous parks in Delhi. Founded in the year 1969, this park is named after the first Prime Minister of India and is a hub for the ones who like to unwind in open spaces blessed with nature. The park is a favourite among the people who live in embassies nestled close by and like to come here for jogging, walking and to enjoy other sports; college students who like to spend some time with friends, and school kids who are brought here for picnics. If we talk about the greenery, then the park which is spread over an area of 80 acres is dotted with a number of seasonal flowers and trees namely Pines, Palm, Neem, Champa, Gulmohar, and Ashoka. From dusk till dawn, one can spot people here who come to revel in the natural bounty of the park, maintain a healthy lifestyle or just enjoy a picnic with family and friends. Furthermore, the park also hosts free yoga sessions by instructors which take place every day. However, one of the reasons that travellers must have known Nehru Park the most for is the cultural events that keep on taking place on its wide expanse. The art, dance, music and more such events that take place here helps promote tourism in Delhi.
Nehru Park is open from 5:00 AM to 9:00 PM and throughout on Monday.
