  • Ovo je samo jos jedan u nizu lepih parkova u Teheranu. Uredan i lepo odrzavan sa papagajima koji lete kao golubovi po Srbiji. Na vrhu parka je ogromna statua i predivan pogled.

  • 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.
