This is another post about the massive park I stumbled across right where we visit family each year in Ankara, here in Türkiye. Having always been behind the wheel of a car in that city, I somehow missed this! But now that I know it’s here, it certainly makes it more pleasant for a spot of morning exercise.

When we first arrived, this lake was frozen over, and as my morning walks were not conducive to carrying a camera – too busy trying to stand up in some places – this shot was taken a while later. Quite dark of course as before 07:00 in mid winter.

The sheer volume of flowers they use in these parks amazes me sometimes; especially knowing how many plants it takes to fill just a small area in our own garden back home!

Being set in a deep and rather steep-sided valley, there are even a number of bridges that span the park overhead.

Although obviously closed at 07:00am on a winter’s morning, there is a permanent fun fair there too I found – next time perhaps.

There is even a loelşy small mosque. I guess with the various cafe’s and restaurants dotted around too, you could spend a fair while in the park in summertime.
