4.3/5 based on 200 reviews on the web
Rent a bike, paddle around the lake, or simply stroll among rose beds, fountains, and monuments at Carol Park (Liberty Park). Originally designed in the 1900s as a French garden, the park suffered many changes during the communist regime. See a mausoleum with canons at the front, built of black and red granite and dedicated to socialist revolutionaries. The park also features a technical interactive museum, an open-air Roman arena, a memorial in the shape of a small mosque, and two statues depicting nude youths. Amenities include children's playgrounds, several restaurants, and some ice cream and lemonade stands.

  • While it's not as big or as stunning as Cismigiu or Herastrau, Carol Park is still a fantastic visit. It's scenic from the entrance at Piata Libertatii as well as from up top at the war memorial.

  • Nice small Park. A couple of children play areas, a (dirty) lake and lots of green trees. Good place to go for a run or walk . The mausoleum is always impressive.
  • Historic park with a nice small lake. You can take small boats to have an enjoyable trip. A mausoleum in the center. Science museum nereby.
  • A great park, very large, with monuments and a lake with animals and places to relax, walk, skate, eat and drink and many more. A place for families, the young and the old. Poor parking space
  • Verry nice park, with a hill, a lake, a monument... Lots of statues and old trees. Also you can find here a good restaurant, Dines. I like this park a lot because is small but has it all.
  • An old park with big trees. There are a few playgrounds but rather small. The lake is an attraction. You can rent a modern boat for 10ron. Half of it is on a hill so there are quite a few alleys where kids can climb and descend on scooters, bikes, etc. I used to train here on my road bike on the short sharp climbs. There should be policemen patrolling more often. From time to time I see groups of gipsies trashing and misbehaving near the official northern entrance.
