Abbasağa Park

Cihannüma Mh., Beşiktaş, Istanbul

Always open

This pleasant neighbourhood park in Beşiktaş is great for a short walk (albeit an up-and-down one), resting or even doing some exercises (there is a basketball court and a fitness equipment area). It also has a huge community of cats.

Perhaps the park’s biggest attraction is its decent-sized amphitheatre which became a focal point for forums during the Gezi protests in the summer of 2013. People gathered night after night to have their say, play music, and eat and drink together (read more here). In the spring and summer months, the amphitheatre also hosts concerts and an open-air cinema.
