I think Istanbul is a very green city. Here is a big forest in Istanbul with some cafes inside, walking paths, a dam and some places to make picnic.
If you're searching for a sense of wilderness in the midst of Istanbul's great mosques, lively bazaars, and cramped dolmuş rides, then your nearest and dearest opportunity would be Belgrad Forest. Just northwest of the city, this 55,000 hectare proliferation of protected woodland provides plenty of…
The Belgrad Forest is the natural wooded area on the European side of the province of Istanbul at the easternmost end of the Çatalca Peninsula.

“Situated in the Sariyer, district of Istanbul, Emirgan Park covers the area of 47.2 hectare which is surrogated high walls. Previously named as ‘’Feridun Gardens,’’ that area was called Emirgan Park anymore. Because the park was given by Ottoman Emperor Murat IV as a present to Persian Emir Gune Han (Ameer Gune Khan) in 17th century. Then it was presented by Ottoman Sultan Abdulaziz to Khedive of Egypt Ismail Pasha in 19th century. As it is seen that for centuries, it has passed into other people’s hands. Once you step into that magnificent park, you feel yourself in metaphysical world due to breathtaking scenery combining with the seaside; don’t be shocked if you encounter a friendly siquirrel with a nut in its hands. They climb the trees and play with the visitors. Today, it is possible to find quiet places, to watch its charming landscape towards Bosphorus, to lie down and take a sunbath and to read a book on the grass within the park. Also sometimes people can have a picnic here; you should take a sandwich and a cup tea when you come to the fascinating park. If you want to run, you can do it by watching the sea and by listening the voices of the chirpy birds. Except for those features, there are located three excellent Pavilions; they are Yellow, Pink and White Pavilions.”
