  Frredom Park
by Erkmen

Favorite thing: Istanbul is changing with its new and nice parks.. You can find them all around the city..

The main parks are as follows..

Gulhane Park: Located in the touristy peninsula. This old park has been renovated newly and have a nice environment..

Yildiz Park: Located between Besiktas and Ortakoy.. Has a wonderful landscape.. Looking to bosphorus up above.. You need to climb up the hill near Ciragan palace..

Parkorman: A park inside the forest.. With the help of the private organizations this park has become the most popular place in Istanbul.. The park also hosts many live concerts and open air show..

Ozgurluk parki: Freedom park on the Asian side of Istanbul.. All the main activities and events of Asian side of Istanbul is taking place in this park.. Live concerts, Exhibitions, Fairs and etc.. The park also has several alternatives for kids to be entertained ..

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
