The district of Fındıklı is a Beyoğlu district on the coastline on the Bosporus in İstanbul. Fındıklı is located right in the middle of Kabataş and Tophane at the Rumeli point of the Bosporus and extends on the coastline. There are two important structures that add value to the district. One of them is Mimar Sinan University and the other is the Fındıklı Park. The park is especially the symbol of this district. It is very big and hosts some of the sculptures made by the students at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Minar Sinan University. The Fındıklı Park which is considered among the most special parks not only in the region but also in entire İstanbul is highly attractive for those who want to have a rest at a point away from the chaos of the city.
The Fındıklı Park especially gets a beautiful atmosphere early in the morning. The most crowded hours of the park are in the morning. The most special thing about the Fındıklı Park is a great view of the Bosporus. You can sit on the benches here and enjoy the scenery. There is also a popular tea garden at some point of the park. The park remained closed due to subway constructions for a period. Playgrounds were also demolished during that time. The Fındıklı Park is among the most popular parks for the people of İstanbul and very valuable in terms of history and culture. Therefore, activities here are conducted with utmost care.
The Fındıklı Park, one of the rare spots which have not been turned into settlement, is surrounded by steel piles. The Chamber of Architects gave a serious reaction to the sudden closure of the park and issued a press release. They reminded that this park with an exceptional view, where the local people can meet arts and nature, has been considered an “Urban Protection Site” since 1993.
