  • For 2000 d per person entry, why deprive yourself of a walk in a park big enough to no longer hear traffic? It's nice but not essential. Especially since the Park is badly maintained... Less enjoyed the cages with live animals in their dirt. Especially the monkeys who did not look in great shape... Unitrip.fr

  • Nothing much to see, the place looks quite neglected. With unnecessary locked up monkeys in a small cage as well as a few birds :( 
  • This is a pleasant park, but nothing worth making a special trip to. If you are staying the the area and need a place to walk, fine.

  • Lovely park with a man-made lake right in the middle. Perfect place to jog/run/workout or just sit on one of the many stone benches to read a book. 2k VND to enter. Also contains a bunch of Pokestops.
  • I didn't plan to visit this but as I passed by it, I decided for a quick visit. The way I took it, it's a less-maintained place. It should be better than just this.
  • A good place for a walk, there are some big, old trees; not many places like this in Hanoi nowadays. There're also some couples were taking wedding photography, cool.
  • Good place. Fresh air.
  • Very nice, many old trees. People usually go to do exercises in the morning
