  • First of all I think it is necessary to know that many of monuments names has been changed since 1979. The former name of "Mellat Park" was "Royal Park". The park is located in northern side of Tehran...  more »

  • 就在Valiasr街道的旁边。是露天的街心花园。呈阶梯状一直向里延伸。中间有亭子、喷泉、雕像,各色座椅、方便游人小憩。还有儿童游乐区和一些健身器材供大家使用。园内树木更是高大葱郁,花草因为是初秋的缘故,显得有些凋零。总之,他给人们提供了一个休息娱乐的场所,是城市里不可或缺的部分,更是一道亮丽的风景线。

  • Beautiful, clean park. Great place to spend time with friends and have some crazy privacy lying on the grass. Would suggest to every tourist to visit this green piece in crowded smoggy Tehran.
  • This will be in your top ten parks in Tehran. being close to Vali-Asr street and on the Niyayesh junction makes it easy to reach. Having big area and some animals inside it make it more interesting to visit. there is a pool in the middle of park and flowers are always fresh and beautiful.
  • By far the most amazing landscape comparing to any other parks in Iran. Very good for jogging.
  • Tehran's equivalent of a "Central Park." Beautiful park although it has deteriorated in recent years. Nevertheless beautiful and with a visit.
  • One of the best urban open spaces in Tehran. Peaceful and beautiful in all seasons.
