Cismigiu Park is a wonderful space to play and explore with kids near the Old Town of Bucharest. It’s close to transport links and parking to make the journey there easy, and it’s close enough to the Old Town to combine with a meal or explore there too.

In the park there are many kids play areas, but throughout the year there are other activities you can do too, such as boating on the lake in the summer and skating in the winter (the lake is drained). They host Spring, Easter, and Christmas markets at the southern end of the park too. Oh and if you are in to card collecting, then every Saturday morning there is a swap-meet by the hill!

Boating on the lake 10Lei 30 mins, 15 Lei 1 hr

Skating costs between 15-20Lei depending on the day/time. Open from 10am – midnight
