“Skip this park and stroll around district 6 instead”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

A park for a nap - but not for seeing life unfold.
Skip the park and instead spend an afternoon in district 6 between Andrassy-Nagykürut-Wesseleny, this is an area buzzing with life! Experience the uniquely Budapest invention of szimpla kert ("ruin pubs") - look it up and find these little beer gardens in the midst of ruins of something. Makes better sense also botanically.

“Nice park, great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

Big park, next to some of the most popular sights like Heroes Square, Vajdahunyad castle, Zoo etc. Nice restaurants on the lakefront and we read that wintertime when lake frozes there are public skating area. You can rent rowing boats and some other water"toys" too.

“Wonderful park, not shopping!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

I am not sure why this park is listed under shopping, it is a lovely park with a fairytale castle. It is also home to the agriculture museum and transportation museum. There is a beer garden, restaurant and many benches to relax and enjoy the view. You will find it just past Hero's Square across the bridge. When we visited, there was an international fair, but there were still plenty of nice spots where the park was not overrun by people.

“It's terrible to see this site made a top shopping place (only by Tripadvisor...)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

The city park is just what the name says: the main CITY PARK. A beautiful, pleasant park, especially since it is literally surrounded by more than half-a-dozen other top Budapest attractions
