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.

its mainly used for wedding pictures for the newly wedded couples and its a good place for family picnics as it has vast amounts of land to play many forms of sport, you can even see part of the bosphorus bridge in its majesty and scenic view
