This is a nice little local park for an evening walk with several places, where locals dance classic dancing. In addition to this local student approach foreigners to train their English, and this is a very interesting way to learn about the city, the people, and the country. Though only sparsely lit, it is very safe and cosy.

Popular park for relaxation and exercise like badminton, jogging, football and dancing. On occasions there are festivals and celebrations organized in the park. But there are many robbers and trash you have to advoid.

The park is not very green. There's a small grassy area with benches all around. The rest of the park is like a concrete island with a few exercise machines. My husband and I went to this park twice on our last day in HCMC....More

This park is in the center of what is happening in and around downtown HCMC. Unfortunately, a chunk of the park has been taken over with the construction around the Ben Thanh Market end of the park. This was a main part of the park...More

In the morning walking this place gives me the joy of seeing locals doing their daily exercise or their love for dancing in one of the hut. Just feel at peace in the middle of the city.

At night fall, this park comes alive: badminton, exercise machines ... even ballroom dancing?!? Much of this park is too hemmed in by busy streets on all sides to be relaxing, but sometimes, if you squint, you can forget for a moment the mayhem of...More

Located just nearby Ben Thanh market, it's very convenient for tourist to visit after shopping or finishing food tour. There are many cultural activities and music show here during the year.
