This is a nice little local park for an evening walk with several places, where locals dance classic dancing. In addition to this local student approach foreigners to train their English, and this is a very interesting way to learn about the city, the people, and the country. Though only sparsely lit, it is very safe and cosy.

It's a free park and it's big enough for a workout run or to sit and relax and watch the busy life in Ho Chi Minh. You can find lots of student groups here , they often gather around foreigners to talk and practice English. It's good to help them to improve their English; however, beware of scam and pickpocket.... More

This park is a joy to visit in the early morning when it is used extensively by the locals before the heat sets in for the day. When we were there we saw people doing a salsa class, badmington, yoga, exercise classes, footsal, volleyball and a group of new army recruits practicing their marching, as well as lots and lots...

My sister and I stayed at The Dragon Palace Hotel which is just a short walk to the Park. From the rooftop restaurant we had a good view of the long park which spans from the Backpackers' Area to Ben Thanh Market at the far end. There are plenty of benches where you can pass time people watching or simply... More

This park is narrow but quite long, in the backpackers region it is well used by the locals and tourists alike. It is relaxing and has plenty of seats so you can sit and have a break and watch the locals dancing, exercising or going about their everyday life. I recommend a visit here.

Here is the place where couples come together, also it is between the backpacker area and Central Ben Thanh markets where the bus station is. there are always schoolchildren around to learn English, please take time for a moment chat with them.

If you're not a huge fan of bars but want to stay out and about at night, then a park may be one of your goto place. Ho Chi Minh has several parks. Fortunately, our hotel was just a few steps away from September 23 Park-this park. We came here hoping to feel the breeze and weren't disappointed. We walked... More

During the day, there are the tourists and the locals in the evening, who take full advantage of this park. An important habitat, though not always everything is as clean as Western critics would like.
