The Hidiv Korusu, also referred to by the locals as the Çubuklu Korusu is found in Beykoz and is known for its spectacular views. It was named after the Egyptian Viceroy, Ismail Pasha. It was used during the Ottoman era as a hunting ground. A summer house was built on the estate by the last Egyptian Viceroy, Abbas Hilmi Pasha.
Appearing like a palace hidden amongst the greenery, the Viceroy’s summer house also has the largest rose garden in Istanbul.
Today the park has two children’s playgrounds, two workout stations, a decorative pool and an observation deck located throughout an area of 188,655 square meters. A walking path with a series of workout equipment lined up along its sides runs 1,650 meters through the grove.
