    Best Park in Delhi and Free with plenty to see
    Lots of tombs to explore which are free to see and great for photos. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Delhi as a top site. Has some public toilets inside which have a small cost. Great ponds and excellent for wildlife. Beautiful fountains and small activities like stepping stones. Gardens are well kept and clean. Excellent place for a break from the busy streets of Delhi. Close to great shopping in khan market.

    Beautiful garden with historical significance
    I didn’t expect much when I decided to visit the venue. It turned out to be amazing! First of all, there are so many animals! Birds and squirrels. The place is also very quiet and calming, perfect for a morning stroll. Second, it’s huge and so green. It’s a great escape from busy and polluted New Delhi. Third, it has historical aspects. You can find several tombs and mosques from the Lodhi Dynasty of the Delhi Sultanate. You can see its great architecture and how the sultanate influenced India today. Try to visit this place when you come to Delhi.

    Careful about the morning fog in winter
    I was probably there too early at 7.30am. It was very foggy / polluted yet people were running and doing yoga. Good if you want see a few old buildings, yet not the most impressive. Contrary to what I read in a few blogs, the tour can be done in 30-45min. No need 2h to see this place

    Beautiful Cascading Bougainvilleas
    We visited two entrances of this park. On one side it has a beautiful heart-shaped arch and cascading bougainvilleas. It’s a very romantic place to take some pictures. There are several tombs there as well, which provide some photography opportunities. There were many monkey babies playing around as well as hawks, chipmunks and other animals and birds. It’s a great free place to relax.

    Wonderful park
    I really enjoyed my 2 hours walking around this park. I took bus 522 from Gole Market, which is convenient if you stay near Connaught Place. The bus stops right in front of one of the entrances to the park. The park is dotted with old buildings and tombs. It's quiet and peaceful, and there is a wonderful bird life there too. A highlight of Delhi.

    Absolutely Lovely
    I loved the LodhibGardens, a cool and tranquil oasis in the heart of heaving teeming Delhi. The gardens are free to enter and offers lovely, shaded, leafy paths through the beautifully tended flowers, shrubs and trees. There's a peaceful lake too. Another highlight was the beatiful mausoleum and mosque that face each other at one end of the park and the huge red bricked Fort at the other. I had a wonderful hour or so just wandering and relaxing here on my first day in Delhi, a great introduction to the city's charms.

It is a Beautiful Garden built on 90 acres of land and a juncture for morning, evening, day walks by the Delhities nearby.

There are Beautiful Architectural structures inside the garden like Bara Gumbad, a three domes masjid built around 1494, a beautiful Shisha Gumbad, Sikander's Tomb, Atpula the eigth piered Bridge which is know to be the last building in Delhi built during the reign of Akbar and lots of stunning Tombs which is used for many photoshoots by individuals.

A MUST VISIT!!!

I love everything about this park: the flowers, the birds (parrots, geese, etc), the monuments. You can walk, run, bike, play on the grass... it’s just a great place to be among monuments in Delhi. On the weekend is full of people enjoying the outdoors. In the morning many do yoga in a wonderful setting.
There are also potable water dispensers throughout the park for those very hot days!
The park is super clean and the stray dogs are friendly.

Lodhi Garden is very nice and clean place for Picnic with family & friends.
There are lots of trees and well maintained grass along with jogging/walking tracks.

Sometimes dance/drama kind of activities happen there, which add to the energy of the place.
Washrooms are also usable.

Couple of negative points:
1. It can be difficult to find car parking in peak hrs (winter afternoon, summer evenings)
2. There are hawkers selling tea, chips, toys, etc.

We walked from Claridges and it took about 10 minutes to get there.
The gardens are lovely and big with 90 acres and 3 different tombs and a small lake although it needs a clean out.
We went on a Sunday and the gardens were packed with 1000's of families all meeting and enjoying picnics. Playing cricket as you would expect in India and football and other racket games. It's been a long time in the UK since I have seen so many generations of families get together and enjoying themselves, it's a shame it doesn't happen back in the uk.
You could walk around the gardens for hours or just sit and watch the world go by.
Lovely tranquil place to visit.

One of the best places in Delhi for family picnic, pre-wedding photo shoot, morning walk and evening walk. One can simply spend time with their family or friends on the lush green lawns. The tombs, the trees and the greenery all around will give a relaxing feeling. There is no entry fee and photography is allowed.

Lodhi gardens are one of the most popular gardens in the city. They're great for morning and evening walks, workouts and taking your pet dogs.
There are tombs, bonsai gardens, open gyms, a lake and a small butterfly garden.

Lodhi gardens have been developed and maintained in New Delhi, lodhi estate since the time of mughals. Till date they are well maintained and one should pay a visit for sure if visiting delhi. The gardens have tombs built in as a memorial of the delhi rulers and their queens and children too. Many foreign nationals and tourists can be seen taking a morning walk in this area.

Big park in the hub of the city with a few historical buildings. Perfect place to relax during winter afternoons. Plenty of docile dogs in the park and families out on picnic. Entry is free for all, but no food and water are sold inside the park.

Generally the Lodhi Gardens stay off the beaten track for tourists visiting Delhi the first time. However, these gardens should be on the must visit list for anyone interested in history and architecture as they house several monuments from the myriad pre-Mughal Islamic dynasties that ruled Delhi. Some of the relatively restored monuments include the Aathpul, Bada Gumbad mosque, Shish Gumbad, tomb of Muhammad Shah Sayyid and the fort like tomb of Sikandar Lodi.

These gardens have served as the location in many movies and picture shoots. However, due to their expanse they still offer a great place for unwinding (in the daylight). It's a five minute walk across the road from the splendid Safdarjung tomb and about 10 minutes walk from the Jor Bagh station on the yellow line. And the best thing - it's free of cost for one and all.

The gardens are beautifully kept. The range of flowers and foliage was impressive as were the chipmunks (certainly not squirrels) scampering around. The air of tranquillity in a busy city was unexpected. Only downside was the issue with parking out the park.
