Herastrau is for Bucharest is what Central Park is for NY,or Englische Garten for Munchen, respecting the proportions.It has lots of green,a main lake (actually the lake gave the park's name),that you can sail by small boats,or cross over by larger boats that take tourists across the lake.The park itself offers you an occasion to walk,cycle or roll in a beautiful spot.It has bike/rollers tracks and spots where you can buy a snack,water or juice.
It is still far from the parks of the european capitals,it lacks in management,but,it is fairly clean and you will not regret the visit.You can enter,parking is ok,from the Bulevardul Aviatorilor-Hard Rock Caffee entrance,or by subway station-Aviatorilor.If you are closer to Floreasca,there is an entrance on the East side of the lake,by Restaurant Isoletta.

Herastrau is perfect for lazy weekend afternoon walks, especially so if you don't mind thousands of other Bucharestians doing the same. There are also many restaurants and cafés around. Although there is a stray dog problem in the city and not all places are recommended for jogging, Herastrau is pretty safe for exercise.

Just walk around the lake, it will relax you as nothing else does ! You can enter the park from many sites around Bucharest. You can enter one gate and find your way out after hours, or after minutes, it's up to you what way in and what way out you choose.
You can spend all day long in the park, you can hire a boat you can cross the huge lake by a motor boat, you can also have lunch or dinner or just coffee.
Have a nice day in Herăstrău and a wondrful stay in România !!!

I currently live in Bucharest and Herastrau Park is the biggest of all parks in the city.
It surrounds a huge lake and you can do all kind of activities there: go on the boat, bike riding, take long walks to admire the view.
It also has duck and swans on the lake, which is a bonus from me.
The design of the park is really nice.

Lovely park in Bucharest... Perfect for an afternoon relaxing walk especially in autumn... Colors of autumn makes the place even more beautiful
