Netaji Subhash Park is located in Old Delhi on the main Netaji Subhash Marg just opposite Sunehri Masjid. Like Mahatma Gandhi Park, it is also not a very big park as it shares its boundary with another park known as Urdu Park. The park is a good place with lot of malishwallahs (body massagers). Try a massage, if you have the time

The main attraction of the park is the imposing statue of Subhash Chandra Bose, as a military leader. Subhash Chandra was a popular nationalist leader of the country. He was such a great leader that the whole country remembers him as Netaji, which means the leader of the masses.. His ways were aggressive and he formed the Indian National Army (INA) to fight the British forces. His famous slogan was 'you give me blood and I will give you freedom'.

Subhas Chandra Bose's plans to achieve independence through armed means were unsuccessful. His death is till date a mystery and is said that he died during a plane crash over Taiwan but his body was never recovered.
