  • Magnificent park with breathtaking views and unbelievable design in the heart of Tehran! The natural topography of the hills that this park is built on it gave magistic beauty to exquisite architectural details. Especially in Tehran's hot summer evenings, families come to have fun in this place. You will see youngsters skating or dancing together. Laughter and joy surge and birds sing with the blow of the breeze. A new cinema complex and art gallery are added to the park on recent years. Around it you can find various good restaurants and coffee shops.
  • Visited the park 15 years ago on my trip to Tehran. Had very open and mind blowing views with families coming for picnics. Willing to visit amazing Iran once again.
  • One of the best parks of Tehran which is located in a high altitude district of Tehran and is famous for different types of flowers and statues. There is also a great cinema complex in there and attracts a lot of visitors every week.
  • Great place to go jogging. The area is large and covered with lots of trees. The view to mountains in the north is also nice.
  • Good place to visit... reasonable prices at restaurants..
