I live nearby and walk there every now and then. I've liked it since my childhood, whether in summer or in winter. Maintanance sholud be better, especially in rainy months.

A walk in Maksimir Park is very enjoyable, especially if you have kids, bikes etc.We visited and admired the tall trees in their autumn colours. I personally find the idea of a zoo antiquated and would rather it did not exist but anyway, if you don't like to see animals in cages then you can opt not to.

Just like any other parks, a walk through it under good weather can be calming and relaxing. It's about 35-40min walk from the Square - alternative? Tram.

This park is massive and will make you forget you're in a capital city. You can wander around for a long time and and upon a nice lake or an inspiring monument once in a while. After being in the city for too long, it was a very welcomed breath of litteral fresh air.

I spent more than half a day in ZOO in Maksimir Park enjoying animals, flowers,Trees and lake who is much more pond than lake, but we call it lake. I have been in many Zoo's, but this small but cute is my home town and I liked the best. Several species of monkeys including my favorite chimps are always in... More

The park was opened in 1794 and named after its founder, Bishop Maksimilijan Vrhovac. With its large meadows, numerous creeks and several lakes it is an ideal place for spending a whole day. In the southern part of the park, there is a small, but well-kept Zoo.
