One of the favorite walking areas in Budapest is the Varosliget park - and there is a good reason for this - very close to the Heroes square, with a good "network" of walkways but also containing several landmarks and points of interest.
It was the same for us - after a 4 hours drive from Timsioara (typically is less - it is about 3 hours , but this time at the border crossing it was a 1 hour wait ) we stopped at the Varosliget park for a stroll to stretch a bit and unwind from the drive.
Anyways it is one of my favorite parks to take a walk when I'm in Budapest because regardless the season it is always interesting and always I discover things that previously slipped my attention.
In the park of near park you shall find the Szechenyi bath (this is near the park) , the Zoo of Budapest (near the park) , Varosliget Lake (in the park) , Vajdahunyad Castle (in the park) , House of Music (in the park) , Budapest ice ring (in the park) , Heroes Square (near the park) ... etc. So, if you want you can plan your entire day to spend it in the area of Varoliget park.
Entrance is free of charge - for the park itself - to the Szechenyi bath or Ice Ring , Zoo , Museums you will pay a fee for visiting.
Nevertheless, it is a beautiful area for walking and enjoying some fresh(er) air in the middle of Budapest.

If you have time, go to the park, if you don't have time, go anyway!😁😁😁 The park is just very nice. It is diverse and wide-format. From a replica of a medieval castle to modern sports grounds. Monuments and entertainment necessary for a comfortable life, sports in one place. I recommend it for a visit.

When you are in the area of Heroes square in Budapest , you have the opportunity to take a walk in the Varosliget - a nice park in the city - a huge green area with alleys, bars, restaurants, baths, museums, Zoo , etc. etc.
We where there just strolling , stopped at a terrace for a few drinks and we went on ... but in the hot summer days a walk in the shade can be really rejuvenating ... plus with so many things at hand, in the same area it is great to walk regardless the season ...
When you are in the area , and you feel like strolling I would say it is definitely worth it.
Go and check it out for yourself.

Fantastic project with an incredible vision. Changing the park from a Soviet neglected area to one of the best parks in Europe, perfect for anyone to enjoy. Incredible architecture and really relaxing.

Overall a nice park with many statues and old buildings scattered about it. There are also several toilets,some you pay for,one is free but some of the pay ones where out of action. There also a massive sloping garden with a metal memorial between to two sides of it. When we visited there was no water in either the lake or the moat and it looked like it was going to stay that way for a little while. There is also a brand new cultural centre/music hall just been built in a modern style. The park also contains the city zoo.

Such a large green park in the city.
The park offers great walk paths and many things to see.
I visited this park to see the statues there and especially the statue of the Albanian National Hero Gjergj Kastrioti - Skenderbej.

At the time we visited the park on December there was a skiing place.

Lovely open park space. Great for walking or cycling. Free acces. Visited in December when there was an ice rink (entry fee) set up. Amazing buildings around the park housing a variety of cultural activities. Lots of places to get food & drink.
Also access to Szechenyi thermal baths (fee to enter)

We have been to Budapest twice, and always enjoy spending time in this very large park because there are so many interesting buildings, gardens, and statues; as well as several cafes where you can relax and enjoy the views.

I like this beautiful park very much. It’s 100 hectare, near Heroes’ Square and Zoo. There are lots of entertainment and relaxing facilities, museums, Vajdahunyad Castle. If you are tired of traffic and noise, you can hide and relax here. We walked there and saw the House of Music and Etnography Museum.
