Yildiz Park, Istanbul

4.4
#9 of 82 in Parks in Istanbul
Meander through one of Istanbul's largest public parks at Yildiz Park, a historical site that was once part of the imperial garden of Yildiz Palace. Today, the green lawns host exotic flowers and old vegetation like oak, magnolia, and Judas trees. Walk, jog, or skate the paved pathways to a panoramic viewpoint of the Bosphorus, or have a picnic in the Cadir or Malta pavilions. Despite the popular trails, the large forest makes it easy to escape the crowds. Use our Istanbul trip builder app to add Yildiz Park and other attractions to your Istanbul vacation plans.

  • The best park in Istanbul, counting the ones I've seen. It's nicely maintained, with a lush greenery and a very relaxing atmosphere. People come here for a small picnic or a walk, but there are also several restaurants where you can grab a coffee and a cake. If you are close to this part of the town make sure to visit it! :)
  • This Park is so beuatiful and definitely worth visiting if you have time. You can bring some snacks and enjoy them at their tables&banches,like locals do, or bring your own food and have breakfast there.
  • This park has great facilities for kids and plenty of space for wildlife too. In the spring look out for collared Flycatchers. Warblers most of the year, and parakeets too. Not many public toilets
  • Piece of art. Nice place, clean and relaxing. Walk area is available. Water falls and lakes. Family place, Must viat.
  • Beautiful park with flowing water and small lake. You can see some turtles, birds, squirrels. The park have some entertainment wood bridges. There are a lot of brides and grooms having pictures. The park doesn't have a toilet😔
