It is a park in the middle of touristic centre in Istanbul. It is full of flowers and has many benches to relax on them. There are some food and a restaurant in the park too. But stall holders also are outside the park .

One of the most beautiful parks in Istanbul. The famous turkish poet Nazım Hikmet mentioned it in his poem "The Walnut Tree". You should come here during the annual Tulips Festival, drink some tea, and let the spirit work its magic.

Just next to topkapi, a lovely walk, but missed the tulips; go in mid April. Don't exit onto Kennedy street, I would walk back and enjoy the London prides and tulips

Gulhane Park located very near Sultan Ahmet has come a long long way from how it looked only 10 years ago. I was there 30 March 2018, a nice sunny warm spring day. I was really glad I made the trip. The park is covered...More

Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere

Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to

There were no fees to enter the park and you can definitely take a picnic with you. I am not sure about the hours. Hope this helps!
