Gulmohar Park is an affluent, upmarket and green neighbourhood in South Delhi. The park lies between Hauz Khas and Balbir Saxena Marg and is named after the red-flowered Gulmohar trees (Delonix regia) growing inside. The nearby residential colony is known as Gulmohar Park Journalists' Colony or simply Gulmohar Park for short, and was established by a group of journalists in the 1970s and is today home to top notch business people, senior lawyers and cine star Amitabh Bachchan's Delhi residence.[1] [2]

Gulmohar Park is surrounded by Balbir Saxena Marg and Hauz Khas to the south, Yusuf Sarai, Gulmohar enclave and Gautam Nagar to the west, Neeti Bagh to the north and August Kranti Marg (also known as Khelgaon) and Siri Fort to the east.

The colony covers 43 acres (170,000 m2) and has 13 parks inside. It is divided into four blocks (A, B, C and D) and also contains a DDA market and a residents' club (Gulmohar Club). Inside the colony is a police post, part of the Defence Colony Police Station.
