This park has a somewhat ghostly intrigue. When reviled Communist dictator Ceausescu wanted to build his palace, he had most of the of the surrounding historic area razed. Remnants of those beautiful neighborhoods can be seen in this park - building foundations and street boundaries. Today, it's a nice and green open space where locals walk dogs and cyclists and runners tread the tracks. There are ping-pong tables, fitness areas, and basketball and football courts. There's a huge 'Kid's Parliament' play area.

Izvor Park Reviews & Ratings
From this park you can take great pictures with the Parliament palace. You can find sport zone for easy exercising (mainly for elderly people).
Nice park, good for a light walk or casual biking. Will be a lot better years from now with all the trees fully grown. In the meantime, a nice place to relax a little from the incredibly noisy and crowded city.
Small green zone near the city center. Kids will enjoy a castle to climb and hide, otherwise nothing special. It does host occasional events a few weekends per year, becoming more fun and animated
A basic park located in the center of the city. You can play basketball or jog or just take a walk.
Pros: Nice park in the city center, next to the Palace of Parliament. Cons: next to the Palace of Parliament aka Den of Thieves in Romania. It could use more trees.
