    It's a cool park with modern sculptures. It's very easy to get there.Just take the BRT of Tehran. Also it has the alley of the Persian poets. It's got a small and a beautiful lake surrounded with green fields.

    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.

Where to stay in Tehran

The northern districts of Tehran possess a more suburban, cosmopolitan feel, and a more spacious form, with a number of accommodations geared towards international tourism. Luxury hotels with pools overlooking the parks sit alongside some more basic and humble offerings, usually located on the lesser side streets. The southern districts offer a livelier experience, where guesthouses, hostels, and simple hotels line the confusing bundle of winding streets. Of course, some areas of the south open up a little, and here you'll find a good number of standard and mid-range hotels with varying levels of amenities.
