  • A favorite in town. Buy on a little drink, something to eat, and a soft serve ice cream before going into the Park. One can stroll around, sit on the bench or blanket out in the green. Look at the people who train in utomhusträningsredskapen. There is also a small zoo, with mountain goat, ostrich, monkeys and birds, Macaw, Parakeet, Eagle, Peacock, pigeon and Vulture. Maybe not so fun to see the animals fenced in such small spaces. The Park is big enough to stroll around in an hour.

  • 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.
