An artists corner is also created within the garden where visitors can interact with artists who have contributed to its design and landscaping. Included among the prominent artists are master craftspersons Smt Angoori Devi and Shri Giri Raj Shah for terracotta and Shri Shantilal Joshi for Phad wall-hangings.
The garden is also an art lovers delight. About twenty-five different sculptures and murals were brought together for this project making it one of the largest commissions of public art in the country. The artists were selected as per norms, by a special committee set up for this purpose.
The sculptures created by master craftsmen are a symbol of modern art, yet the arches and domes of the building give the impression of a heady mix of traditional mughal period.
Amongst the innumerable marvelous pieces of architecture is a sculpture in stainless steel , on the lines of a pin-wheel , which flutters with every gush of wind and creates one in hearts too.
There has been an extensive use of terracotta pots and Rajasthani phad art, symbolizing our very own exquisite and traditional art forms.

The Garden of five senses is a breadth taking and enamoring experience. It is not just a park - it is a celebration of aesthetic expression and appreciation, a seamless dialogue between the creations of man and nature that invites interaction and exploration. It is an ideal ground to realize the twin objectives of the need for a public leisure space as well as awakening of human sensitivity to the environment.

One of the awesome gardens in Delhi is the Garden of Five Senses. Located in close vicinity to historical monument Qutub Minar, this garden is venue for Garden Festival and several food festivals throughout the year. The garden is based on the concept of five senses of our body i.e the eyes, nose, touch, taste and ears. Park is open all days a week. During Garden festival which is held in February the flowers at their bloom. Several dance and cultural events are also organized here. However, the park has several drawbacks as well which needs immediate attention like drinking water facility, food area, proper family area as couples are found almost everywhere in indecent position. It is very awkward to visit with kids and elderly sometimes
