#12 of 82 in Parks in Istanbul
Taksim Gezi Park is an urban park next to Taksim Square, in Istanbul's Beyoğlu district (historically known as Pera.) It is one of the last green spaces in Beyoğlu and one of the smallest parks of Istanbul. In May 2013, plans to replace the park with a reconstruction of the former Taksim Military Barracks (demolished in 1940) intended to house a shopping mall sparked the nationwide 2013 protests in Turkey.

  • A large area. For people to gather.. festival is on..so culture blending with music ...talented Craftsmen at work. Really had a great evening
  • I appreciate going to this fresh spot in summer. The place is not big but it is very nice
  • Too hot in August. ...very busy. ....good shops ......many people walking till late . rather safe
  • An average park. Excellent location. There is parking lot nearby. If you happen to visit Taksim Square or Istiklal Street for food, shopping or simply hanging out with friends and family, you might like to sit/take a walk and spend sometime in the park. Nice fountain to sit around. Its not the park where you specially go. But nice to enjoy natural environment to relax or take a breath.
  • Very large area and people are friendly and helpful, good place to chill and to take a breathe in the city because it's green.
