„Simion Bărnuțiu” Central Park

The Central Park "Simion" has a central location in Cluj Napoca, being away from the city noise. It is an ideal place for a walk, the park has a length of 900 m, filled with cobblestone walkways with benches on the side, and a lake on you can make boat ride.

In 1827 the Women's Welfare Association has rented the land in order to establish a place of recreation. In the early 30s of the nineteenth century the park was opened to the public, initially under the name of People's Park. Later alleys and the lake were landscaped and music pavilion was built.

Today, Central Park has a great popularity. All those who cross the threshold can recreate using the many possibilities offered by the park. Besides flowers and green spaces in the park you can find statues and monuments, lighted basketball court, free fitness machines, a fountain surrounded by benches and specially designed children's park.

Chios Lake and Casino building are the main attractions. Summer you can make boat rides on the lake and in winter is an ideal place to skate.

Near the fountain is a "mushroom" where in summer symphonic music concerts are held, and every Saturday and Sunday during the summer there are civil marriages officiated by the mayor and municipality representatives of Cluj Napoca.
