Good for a stroll around, remarkably large, leafy and with a cute zoo in the centre. We found it easy to amble around in.

Maksimir park is great big park in which you can find a really nice zoo. The locals love this park and people are walking, running and riding there bikes in it, so it's almost always full of people which is nice. The zoo itself is very nice too, you can lose a few hours in it, great place to take... More

At any time, when in town, I try to find one hour for running there. The park is huge, small hills and lakes, good atmosphere. Just in opposite of the famous Dynamo stadium, you can't fail the park. Close by, there is Zagreb zoo. also nice to visit and enjoy a cup of coffee. Definitely one of my great places... More

Cute little zoo. The park is in the process of upgrading the animal enclosures so there's a decent amount of construction, but the animals are happy and it's a nice little day out with the kids in a beautiful setting.

A great park to spend a day in for couples, families or groups of friends. There's a zoo inside which is really nice for kids, a few children playgrounds, woods to get lost in with friends - everything you need for a perfect afternoon in nature :)

Maksimir park is a huge gorgeous park full of wildlife such as herons ,African tigers, red squirrels and turtles. The lakes within it are pleasant to walk round and its very nice to find an escape for the city. Most beautiful and big park in Zagreb.

A very big (I mean enormous, as a city park) and well kept park near city center. Really nice place to catch a moment of respite from crowd and just wander around in more natural environment. There is also zoo to be found and some historical buildings with informations about them. Just beware if you decide to grab a coffee... More

Nice place to go with the kids. There are plenty of things for them to do and it is an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
