If you're in Kaleici, then it's not too far to walk from the Old town or harbour, but there is not that much to see in the park. Mainly a promenade with palm trees and some monuments. We didn't really see any exotic animals or birds, just some cats and pigeons.

The park in itself is an ok park. However, if you go to the closest part of the park you will find a sightseeing spot where you will be able to see all cliffs with a priceless setup.

When we went, there was a flatable park for kids and we had fun using the fitness machines to stretch the muscles!

There's so much nearby that it can be tempting to miss out this park. Don't. It's absolutely beautiful. The other reviewers have commented on the scenery and views and so on so I'll cover a couple of smaller niceties.
Firstly, there is a small playground near the centre with equipment resembling gym equipment. This is very fun and nothing like what I've come across before in a park. The one that's easiest to describe is equivalent to a cross trainer but with two people facing each other. Other pieces involve your upper body holding on to bars and staying stationary while your legs swing almost uncontrollably from side to side. For more of a challenge, try doing this with your eyes shut. It may be an exercise drive but it's fun either way, and new.
Another thing to note is that the food options here are appropriate. Unlike the beaches where there are food places everywhere that are slightly overpriced, there are a couple of very spacious cafes here. We stopped in one for tost and an ice cream, and sat playing chess in the shade overlooking the sea long after we'd finished. The owner didn't bother us. Very appreciated.
An aspect that you might not expect is the lack of big grassy clearings like I'm used to in British parks. We took a frisbee along looking to play a bit but there was nowhere really suitable. That was fine, but it's worth knowing.

Beautiful park to enjoy the views over the ocean. Nice statues. Pity some has had some graffiti sprayed onto it. Well kept park.

This park overlooks the sea and the views are amazing - the mountains in the distance are a wonderful backdrop to the shoreline and city. It's a great place to enjoy a beer or a cup of tea as the sun goes down.The gardens and seating areas are excellent and the standard of landscaping exceptional. Massive trees and the variety of birdlife were a great surprise. The park is spacious, well groomed and the services are top rate: toilet facilities, picnic areas, rubbish disposal etc are the best we found in Turkey. If you are staying in Kaleici then of course this is your local park, but if you are visiting from elsewhere then the park could be part of a wider tour of the old city and its historic sites. The park complex borders the Hidirlik Tower - over 2000 years old - and is well worth exploring from the park.
