NICE BREATHING SPACE
Dec 2019
A nice open space consisting of parks, open areas and traffic free space in an otherwise suffocating city. We spent a plasant time walking and looking at local activities. Enjoyed it.

A nice traffic free area adjacent to Hoan Kiem Lake.

Comprising of a concreted area and green section this park is a pleasant spot, especially at weekends when it is used to house events and the locals use it as a place to meet and relax. It is actually more than a park being also a memorial to the first king of the Ly dynasty, LyThai Ho, who moved his seat of power to Hanoi thus turning it into Vietnam’s capital and a fairly recent statue of him dominates a section of the park.

Putting up a stage.
Dec 2019
They were putting up a stage in front of the statue which spoiled it a bit. It is worth going for the picture, but it is not something you would go out of your way for.

An inviting area of Hanoi, particularly at weekends
Oct 2019
A small city park to the east of the lake, with a fine bronze statue.

The statue is significant and other reviewers have done a good job of describing it. Go to 'Patrick D' of Warsaw Poland's review for full details.

The park is very busy at weekends and well worth a look.

Lots of events happen here.

Nice big park
Oct 2019
This parc on the eastern side of the lake is a good spot to relax. Behind the statue of Lý Thái Tổ is a nice kiosk and plenty of park benches in the shade. In the early morning groups, mainly ladies, exercise or dance. Nice to watch!

Pretty city park

This is a small but pretty park located in central Hanoi and near to the Hoan Kiem lake. There's a statue of King Ly Thai To which can be seen here.

Nice Park

This is a nice, well-maintained park near the Old Quarter in Hanoi.

There’s a lake, a statue of some king and lots of green spaces where the local Vietnamese work out and play games.

Well worth a visit!

Busy and crowded park during the weekends. It's a good place for families with children to do some activities.

Ly Thai to Statue
Oct 2018 • Friends
Chanced upon this attraction while walking around the Hoan Kiem Lake. Saw some tourists flocking the area so I followed.

The statue apparently was that of Ly Thai To, an emperor who founded was it now Hanoi. Kids played with their skateboards in this area of the park while some mature ladies were grouped together having a lively chat among themselves.

A nice park to visit.
