  • This is the most beautiful location inside the Ataşehir. Finding the entrance can be Hard but after passing the central Ataşehir turning the right at the lights. You feel as if you are in the heaven. Different plants are really amazing. After martiage some of the grooms there to take pictures.
  • Great walk around the gardens.
  • One of my favorite places on a weekday. Makes me feel in peace.. Weekends are usually very crowded. Good to come here both to have some time alone and with kids. A beautiful place to explore.
  • A fabulous park for all ages. Made from scratch as it were. Upon leaving the car park, you get a small flier with the map of the place on one side, rules (e.g. no consumption of nuts with hulls) of conduct on the other. The underground passage to the park has pictures of how the park was created from nothing on one side and pictures of some of the rare plants that they are growing in the park on rhe other. There is a large section for picnics and then the different areas with amazingly beautiful plants. Also a fun play park fir kids with a maze in it. A MUST when in Istanbul.
