Portion of park adjoining the MCD School is only accessible to women. This was considered necessary as with 10-30,000 men arriving at the Basti each day, women required a space to call their own. Construction on the Women and Children Park commenced in 2010 and was completed by March 2011.

The Zenana Bagh or Women’s Park is regularly maintained under the supervision of a group that meets each month to discuss its management. Presently the park timings are 7 to 12 in the morning and 2:30 to 5:30 in the evening. There have been cases of park misuse and vandalism and the women users of the parks have written applications to the local police station for increased policing around the park.
