First, directions, as it is hard to find, as previous reviewers said. Coming from inner Delhi:
1) Take Aurobindo Marg towards Qutub Minar
2) Immediately after the Indian Handicrafts Emporium on the right (huge, long building), turn left onto Anuvrat Marg (Aurobindo becomes Anuvrat)
3) After you pass the Qutab Minar Metro Station on the left, make the next U-Turn
4) Get in the far left lane and start looking for the sign
5) Turn left into the park at a tiny entrance (break in a wall) with a large bluish/greenish sign that says: Delhi Development Authority and lists rules. (See photo section of this site for a picture)
6) Drive down the narrow road. It makes 2 sharp right bends before coming to a parking lot (past the Jamali Kamali Mosque/Tomb)
Note: The Parking lot has plenty of space, especially considering how uncrowded it was on a Saturday afternoon.
Now the Review:
If you stand in the parking lot with your back to the Jamali Kamali Mosque/Tomb and turn left, you will enter the undeveloped area. There are some amazing sites to see, but I would not recommend going to that area by yourself, especially as a female. There are men who just hang out near the sites and it would make me nervous. I was a bit nervous even with my husband there. You walk through very secluded paths and patches of forest. The paths are very uneven, so wear good hiking shoes.
The Jamali Kamali Mosque/Tomb is having work down on it and the workers have set up a tent village nearby while they work.
If you stand at the entrance to the mosque with your back to it and walk forward, you will see signs for Balban's Tomb. To reach it, you have to climb over some very rocky terrain full of ruins. Not for the unstable, but an interesting tomb if you reach it.
Back at the parking lot, with your back to the Jamali Kamali Mosque, walk straight towards the Qutub Minar or towards the right slightly and you will find the renovated nice part of the park. Paths are wide and relatively nice, there is maintained grass, and nice benches. There is a rose garden and a field where people were playing cricket. A few of the sites have very steep steps to climb. It is not very populated (especially compared to Lodi Gardens), so I still wouldn't go here by myself unless I stuck close to the parking lot. There were a few security guards near the parking lot and the Jamali Kamali tomb.
No bathroom facilities that I could see and no concessions. Bring in your own water. I'd also wear long pants, as some of the paths have thorny plants coming into them. Also wear good walking/hiking shoes.
