Want a place where you can indulge in nature, watch your kids playing outdoors,enjoy savoury breakfasts,enjoy watching couples in wedding outfits doing photoshoots and working out your legs with uphill walks? Then this is the place to be. I personally didn't mind going there everyday.

We first visited the park in Sept 2016 and during that visit we could not enter it as all the entrance from the hill top were closed. Having read the recent reviews I thought the park had become accessible. Unfortunately this was not the case....More

This is a park mostly used by the locals. It is very beautiful and peaceful. If you want to run away from the noises of the city it is the right place to go. There are several restaurants and cafe houses.

Lost in the tulip garden. Well organized and full of vivid and colourful flowers. Nice place to relax, read and enjoy the quietness.

Despite official website information, it is no longer true that the Yıldız Porcelain factory allows visitors. The shop only is accessible.

waterways are to its rich history, there's the
