Yıldız Park - Things To Do in Istanbul - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

This lovely park is located in Beşiktaş right in the heart of Istanbul. With old Ottoman houses, scenic paths, flowers, duck ponds and tree-covered hills, it’s a picturesque place for a relaxing picnic.

Why you should visit it

Bring a rug, grab some food and enjoy a picnic under the trees. Locals flock to the city’s green spaces on sunny days, so arrive early to get a good spot. You can also eat and drink at the pavilions – the restaurants are pleasant and they boast pretty Bosphorus views.

Special tip

Ferries from the Asian side of the city stop at Beşiktaş as it’s a major public transportation hub.
