Refreshingly green, this park is laced with restaurants, tea gardens, a pond with paddleboats, and an amusement park. It's always crowded and pleasantly animated, though it seems more like a busy public gathering spot than a place of refuge. Amid the lawns and boulevards is Bursa's recently reopened Arkeoloji Müzesi (Archaeology Museum), which hosts a range of finds from the surrounding region. The Atatürk Müzesi (Atatürk Museum), just opposite, is housed in a 19th-century French-style mansion once offered as a gift to Atatürk, and which contains old-fashioned furniture and a few exhibits on his life.
