The park, owned and administered today by the Metropolitan Municipality of Istanbul, covers an area of 117 acres on a hillside and is enclosed by high walls.

Inside the park with two decorative ponds are plants of more than 120 species, and very rare trees. The three historic pavilions, called after their exterior color as the Yellow Pavilion, the Pink Pavilion and the White Pavilion were restored in time between 1979-1983.

This park is in a beautiful urban area of Istanbul and one of the largest public parks. It is gorgeous to walk through but it is also known as the Tulip Festival park and in April this is when this park shines with millions of tulips in bloom. Where you see flower beds now they will be filled with tulips.
