A forest in the city

Steep and green, it's indeed a forest within the heart of Istanbul. There is some grass-cut areas and total wilderness that you can get lost in.

Beautiful park, ideal for an early morning walk or run. Gardens are well maintained and the park is very clean. At no stage did I feel unsafe walking alone in the park. A very calming and relaxing environment.

Everyone who went to Istanbul should visit this Park. It is a big park with green everywhere, walking is definitely amusing.

A refreshing escape into the green from the hustle bustle of the city. Walk under the trees, relax, have some snacks or coffee watching the bosphorus through the green.

Yildiz Park is a nice Escape while in Beskitas from the noise and traffic. It's right off the road and and short walk up to the entrance. No cost to enter either. The tulips were a treat for the eyes and the nose while we were there... Chances are good you'll come across someone's wedding pictures being taken too!

The park is very clean, lots of benches, good cafe at the top. Beautiful little lake at the top. A clear Spring day, 20+°, clear, sunny. Uncrowded. Not as colorful as Gulhane, but Gulhane is always crowded

Not as pretty as Gulhane, but not as crowded either. Yildiz Park in Beskitas is a nice way to spend a morning or afternoon to take a break from the noise and traffic of the city. The tulips are lovely and there's a nice restaurant cafe atop a small rise that provides a great view of the park and the... More

A wonderful park in the heart of Istanbul; Macka Kosk will serve you the best manti and souffle available in the city, and the hills will help to burn off those calories. Enjoy the shade and relax with the squirrels.

After a disappointing experience at Yildiz Museum, we decided to come to this park as it was recommended by a guide we met to see Malta Kiosk. We walked the whole way and it is quite a long walk so for those who can not walk for a long time, you can go by taxi. And once inside the park,... More

It seems there is much to see in this park. We didn't see all of the things that are listed as making this park interesting but we thoroughly enjoyed it just the same. We walked from Dolmabache Palace to the park and it was a nice stroll (if its not blistering hot), maybe 20 minutes. We enjoyed the shade of... More
