  1. That’s well written and informative.
    Yes, I have been to North. 5, thanks to Rishi Madan, and don’t rate it highly at all. However it is a gòod diversion on a day you are planning over 20k.
    I would like to add some tracks:
    Rose Garden, Hauz Khas: most popular in South Delhi: 1.5km
    District Park, Hauz Khas: 1.1 km with a lake
    Rai Pithora Garden, Geetanjali, next to Qutab Golf Course
    DDA Park in Malviya Nagar
    Panchsheel Park: 2.8km of forest
    Sanjay Van

  2. We tried to stop by for a run at the Gautam Buddha Park at 7 AM on Sunday and it was closed. How to go for a morning run there if it is not open?
