Lodhi Garden is a recreational area which is situated on Lodhi Road, near the Safdarjung's Tomb. Britishers used to call this garden as Lady Willingdon Park, which was established by the rulers of Lodhi Dynasty. In 1968, this garden was re-landscaped by Garrett Eckbo and JA Stein. Some of the prominent varieties of trees in this garden are neem, eucalyptus, chinar, chir, deodar and others.

There are few small lakes inside the garden that attract birds like owls, kingfishers, hornbills, kites, mynahs, parakeets and babblers. It also has a rose garden with more than 200 varied kinds of roses. The garden houses the Tomb of Muhammad Shah, Sheesh Gumbad, Tomb of Sikandar Lodi, National Bonsai Park, Bara Gumbad and Athpula
