Herastrau Park - Review
Almost 70% of this park comprises of Herastrau Lake, around which the wooded areas grow. Before we speak of the park's recreational opportunities, you should know that human settlement has been discovered in this park that dates back to the Paleolithic era. Bones of the extinct woolly mammoth have been found here. Also found are coins from the first century BC parts to be from the Dacian settlements of Herastrau.
Sunday afternoons, most of the city's residents retreat to this park for leisure, and yet it never feels crowded. Check out the bronze statue of Charles de Gaulle, widely known as the third ugliest statue in the city. There are also statues of other historical figures everywhere. There's an Adventure Park for kids with trails of various difficulties. there's an aquarium with hundreds of marine animals and plants. There is an open-air Summer Amphitheater. Close to the Hard Rock Cafe there will be a jetty from which boat trips can be taken out into the water. Check out the gorgeous Island of the Roses. A 6 kilometers cycling and jogging track circles the lake; during summertime cycles can be rented from the park entrance.
Hands down the best time to be at this park is during summer nights, when the local clubs all set up stages and turn the entire park into a party area. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bucharest itinerary 1 day.

Herastrau Park, Bucharest Reviews
One of my favourite places in Bucharest! Be it a morning run, evening walk or meet up with friends and in all seasons. Right now the park is full of blooms and an active crowd.. you can find small stalls of coffee, ice-creams and crepes and also restaurants for proper meals. A must go if you are visiting and a must go regularly if you live in Bucharest!
Great park, where the people of Bucharest hang out, especially on a lovely day. You can rent a bicycle, go boating, jog or just chill on a park bench. Lots of places to get a snack or drink. The old market, which is now a brewery is good for a meal or just for a few drinks. The park is the place to be on a summer's day.
This is the biggest park in Bucharest, inside it u will find the biggest beer hall in Europe, a great museum, lots of statues randomly placed in the park, lots of great restaurants ( including Hard Rock Cafe ), a mini amusement park and so on. Definitely worth a visit!
Cunoscut până de curând sub numele de parcul Herăstrău, acum poartă numele "regele Mihai I" în memoria ultimului rege al României. Este un parc întreținut de Administrația Lacuri, Parcuri și Agrement București sub tutela Primăriei Municipiului București. Vara se pot face plimbări cu diverse vaporașe de agrement, împreună cu multe alte activități outdoor organizate săptămânal. Este un parc frumos, cu istorie în București.
One of the few green spots in Bucharest... unfortunatelly very few compared to our needs. We need more parks like this. Large lake in the middle, boat rides available when worm enough outside. Good for jogging, responsible bike rides and relaxation. Some decent restaurants as well if you know what you are looking for. Visit this one and the Village Museum next to it, you won't regret it.
