  • I really love Shanader not because of it is a park but for its art gallery. Painting and books You can by photo magazine, post card, paining and also sit and eat tea. 
  • nice green area to relax , and the art gallery is a nice touch with many traditional work placed around the park 
  • Steeped in history the oldest of the city, this park and its twin, are a very interesting area to explore. Green spaces and a chance to eat street food, Kurdish style.

  • Perfect place for a stroll and several places to eat and drink. Some unexpected bits of hidden architectural history!
  • Shanidar Gallery in side of Shanidar park. every is open from 9 am to 12 pm.
  • its ok worth visiting just once
  • Great park to visit usually crowded of people. Can spend a great time there as walking. Has a nice view as well as lake ti check out.
  • A medium sized park situated close to the city centre. Entrance is covered with security and people trying to sell drinks and snacks. The park itself is crowded but quite clean with cable cars overhead. Recommended for a nice walk
