    Istanbul suffers from a paucity of really nice parks. I would say Gulhane and Ulus Park are the nicest. Set along the borders of Topkapi Palace and bounded by the tramway, Gulhane enjoys ample shade from London plane trees. In the spring and summer the park is planted we a great variety of flowers, particularly during the Tulip Festival.

    This beautiful park is an oasis in the middle of the hectic old city - like entering another world after the tourist crowds and vendors hawking their wares. Green lawns, fountains, tall trees and benches to relax on. I ended up here on a hot summer day after doing a lot of walking and took a much needed nap on the grass...and it seemed many others had the same idea.

    Gülhane Park is a historical urban park in the Eminönü district, adjacent to and on the grounds of the Topkapı Palace; the south entrance of the park sports one of the larger gates of the palace. It is the oldest and one of the most expansive public parks in Istanbul.

    Gorgeous! Sat and ate lunch here one day. During the heat of summer this park provides the best respite from the sun. Personally, I thought it was even better than some of the dinky air conditioning at restaurants.

    A great place for a lovely picnic with friends. Peaceful and far away from the city stress. Also check: Yıldız Park in Beşiktaş.

    Beautiful, clean and quite park. A great escape from all the crowds of Istanbul's tourist sites. It's a great area to just chill out and read a book, go for a chat with a mate or just people watch. Peaceful and well maintained area.

    "Gülhane Park was once part of the outer garden of Topkapı Palace and mainly consisted of a grove. A section of the outer garden was planned as a park by the municipality and opened to the public in 1912. The park previously contained recreation areas, coffee houses, playgrounds etc. Later, a small zoo was opened within the park. The first statue of Atatürk in Turkey was erected in the park in 1926, sculpted by Heinrich Krippel.

    The park underwent a major renovation in recent years; the removal of the zoo, funfair and picnic grounds affecting an increase in open space. The excursion routes were re-arranged and the big pool was renovated in a modern style. With concrete structures removed the park regained the natural landscape of the 1950s, revealing trees dating from the 1800s.

    The Museum of The History of Science and Technology in Islam
    The Museum of The History of Science and Technology in Islam is located in the former stables of Topkapı Palace, on the western edge of the park. It was opened in May 2008 by the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.[1] The museum features 140 replicas of inventions of the 8th to 16th centuries, from astronomy, geography, chemistry, surveying, optics, medicine, architecture, physics and warfare.[2] "

    Istanbul is a lively, busy place. You want somewhere cool and calm without the awe inspiring architecture of the great mosques and palaces. So, you come to Gulhane Park. Huge trees for shade, the smell of flowers and the noices of the great city reduced to a gentle hum. The park is huge, really big and a welcome, beautiful oasis in which to sit, gaze, read and think. Then you plunge, refreshed, back into the maelstrom of the great city you never really left.
