As there are not very huge parks in Istanbul Yildiz park and Emirgan Park is considered as among the biggest within the heat of the city. The place is a good place for couple to hang, for wedding fotos mostly. The place is close to Ortakoy. May be after a good time in the park you can slid down the... More

I think most of foreign tourists may not know and go to this park. Its site is huge and very calm though it is in the heart of the city. We didn't know this park and entered it by chance when we passed the front of it. We found a gem in Istanbul.

Very big and many hills to climb . If you are lazy like me you can rent a taxi to take you in a car tour around the park for 20-30 mins. It costs around 50 TL but you will be able to see the whole thing. It is a great place to walk in the winter and spring though.

I have been to this park in different seasons and have loved it every time. Note that it is quite hilly so you will need shoes with a good grip in the winter. if you love squirrels then you will absolutely love it in winter because they always play on the lawn and the trees in the winter season. Even... More

This park is on the way to Ortakoy from Besiktas direction. You simply do not need transportation from Besiktas, just walk. As largest park in the city centre, Yildiz park is full of uphills and not for lazy visitors. But once you go there, you ll notice how city shuts up for a second, enjoy the silence!!!

I visited the Park in January. It was nice and calm. Not too many visitors. I took the tour of the Chalet. The rooms and halls were very impressive. I liked the old heating chimneys, beautifully covered with porcelain. The park is nice, it may be better to visit in the spring. I still believe the Yildiz Park is a... More

The park is a nice little escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. It's a little hilly, but has a lot of green space, play areas, and even adult outdoor exercise areas. It's best in the spring when all of the flowers are in bloom. In April, you walk into the park to a river of flowers. It's... More
