Hi there,

Bogazici University have good sports grounds like running tracks and a lot of outdoor space such as woods, etc. You may be able to exercise there. Apart form that I cannot recall a dedicated outdoor gym. Belgrade Forest has a hilly and very pleasant jogging circuit of 7km around a small lake that has exercising areas, and the waterfront by the sea of Marmara on the asian side close to the baghdad street may be a good place to jog and exercise.

Hope this helps.

Hi Dalu: sorry, I have never heard of one in Istanbul. But as Kozano says the uuniversity has sports facilities that you can use.

Glad you are coming to study in my beloved Istanbul. You'll have a great experience. Anything else you need, just ask. Happy Weekend, LemonLady

Hi Dalu,

All along the Sea of Marmara are many area's with work out equipment. But you have to go to the Asian side for this.

This is also the best place for jogging, or cycling, for miles and miles!

Only on sundays it is busy and these work out equipment might be used.

Go and check it out, this place is all newly renovated and just great!
