Situated in the famous area of Chanakyapuri Enclave in the heart of the city, this park is spread over 80 hectares of land. This park was built in 1969 as a memorial of the first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. This is still a place where the Morning and Evening Raga festivals are organized along with the Annual Bhakti Festival. Apart from these there is also a beautiful Shiva Temple inside the park and the park is a favorite of many people here. The garden also has a life size alloy statue of the October Revolution leader Vladimir Lenin. The place is ideal for a winter afternoon hangout and is a must visit for anyone who visits the city.

A second timer in the lot, the 10 Heads Festival made many fans last year. And now they are back again with some head-turning food and cultural selections. Do note that Foodistan is only a small part of the 10 Head Festival – it also includes stuff on the culture, music and fashion of Delhi.
Jazz Music Festival at Nehru Park It was around 6:45 when I was just leaving from Hauz Khas village, I just checked my Times of India app and got to know that the annual Jazz Music Festival was going on in Nehru Park. I had heard of this event in 2013 from some of my friends and did not wanted to miss this year's chance. So as my friend went home , I took an auto till Nehru park and reached soon after the event had started. There were various Indian and foreign Jazz music bands , which were playing that night. The event does not have any tickets or charges but still there is no unwanted crowd and the park is decorated in a very romantic way. The seats were full , so I stood for some time, then I got a seat but I left it after sometime to struggle my way and reach the group sitting on ground just in front of the stage. I thank myself that I joined that group as that was the crowd which was really enjoying the music and there just for music. A big banyan tree fully covered with beautiful lights and underneath it a band playing fantastic Jazz music , what else could anyone want?? That evening was totally magical and so meditative. There are other events also like shastriya sangeet music etc held every year in Nehru Park.
