In Emirgan Park, the Japanese umbrella pine, one of the oldest trees, hangs out amiably alongside fragrant lime trees. Around its two ponds, more than 120 vital tree and plant species, the bulk of which are rare, have been planted, including various pines, spruces, and cedars. 

Tulips and three small pavilions (operated as cafe-restaurants by a private business) are the highlights of the charming Emirgan Park (Emirgan Korusu), situated on a slope on the European Bosphorus shore in the Emirgan area.

Emirgan Park is great for unwinding, soaking in the environment, and enjoying nature, offering fantastic views of the Bosphorus. Locals enjoy the sunshine, children play, and occasionally a bride poses for her wedding photos.
