* <see name="Emirgan Park" alt="Emirgan Parkı" address="" directions="about 20 min on foot away from main waterfront avenue" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="Free">Situated on the gentle hill overlooking the neighbourhood of Emirgan and the Bosphorus, Emirgan Park was for long the only place in the city where Istanbulites can admire the beauty of tulips. Having lost that distinction in the last decade as tulips are now everywhere, this is still a beautiful park with artificial ponds, small waterfalls, and impressive views of Bosphorus. There are also cafes with open-air sections housed in pleasant former imperial hunting manors. Squirrels are there, too, in the middle of this metropolis of 15+ million people, though you may have to look a bit deeper (or a bit upper on the branches!) to spot them.</see>

* <see name="Maçka Park" alt="Maçka Parkı" address="" directions="between Dolmabahçe Palace and that high-rise of Ritz Carlton" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="Free">This is a park occupying two sides of a valley of this hilly city, with an avenue inbetween. Sides of the valley are connected to each other by a 4-person gondola lift line offering a shortcut when walking to [[Istanbul/Galata|Taksim Square]] as well as nice views of Bosphorus (access to northern station from Maçka Caddesi/Eytam Caddesi, every 5 minutes 8AM-8PM, 1.50 TL pp one-way), and by a wooden bridge over the bisecting avenue if you prefer to take a stroll along nice footpaths of the park.</see>

* <see name="Ortaköy" alt="" address="" directions="north of Beşiktaş" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">A neighbourhood on the bank of Bosphorus with the Ortaköy Mosque&mdash;the baroque mosque under the Bosphorus Bridge, combination of which are one of the most iconic images of Istanbul. This artsy neighbourhood is filled with nice cafes, some of which offer ''kumpir''&mdash;a baked potato with various fillings such as mayonnaise, ketchup, pickles, sweetcorn, sausage slices, carrots, mushrooms, Russian salad among others&mdash;which the neighbourhood is well-known for, and a perfect view crowded and fun. The way from Beşiktaş takes around 25 minutes on foot and is along an avenue shaded by huge plane trees, though the usually-heavy traffic may take some of its peacefulness away.</see>
