Dikmen Vadısı (4 of 4)

Saturday 15 August, 2015 by Uncle Spike

My final post on this valley park area that I discovered this year – even though it’s on the doorstep of where we visit the in-laws! It certainly made for more pleasant morning walks.

The whole place is spotlessly clean, and patrolled by a small army of uniformed, security – which is quite normal for our part of the world. And no, not a single addict or drunkard in sight. Some things about the West and public spaces I do not miss.

To give you an idea on scale, this next view shows perhaps just one quarter of the length of the valley.

Apart from the numerous walkways that cover some five kilometers, there are cafes, restaurants, play areas, exercise parks, a soft running track, lakes, fountains, an amphitheatre mosque, as well as grassy areas, and a vast array of park benches.

I wondered at the price of some the apartments that are literally on the edge of the valley – not that I’d fancy one…. I prefer my farm life too much to be honest.

Bye bye Ankara – see you next winter I guess.
