Kültürpark information

Lonely Planet review

Much of İzmir’s town centre between Alsancak and Basmane was destroyed in the 1922 fire as this had been a Greek neighbourhood for centuries. Today it contains Kültürpark, which helps injects a little greenery into the city and attracts strolling couples and joggers. Specific attractions include a 50m parachute tower , a gorgeous Ferris wheel, some contemporary sculptures on the west side of the pond, and exhibition halls for events including the International İzmir Festival .
