  • this parc is very well maintained and good for a stroll, even with children. For them there is a small zoo and a playground. We enjoyed the view on the mountain 
  • A walk through the Park is a good way to experience the daily life of city residents. People play games of ping-pong, Backgammon and chess in various parts of the Park. The Park is located next to the Museum of carpets.

  • If I look superficially think is a public park in European countries. Because there is a tidy. There are mature trees shade flower has more than nine again, the bench to change one's plans in every corner garden. Spacious rooms with a very clean smooth granite. No waste at all. All the good weather, relax in comfort. A beggar has no.

  • 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.
  • Tehran's equivalent of a "Central Park." Beautiful park although it has deteriorated in recent years. Nevertheless beautiful and with a visit.
