Hoang Van Thu Park

Located in Tan Binh District, just a stone’s throw away from Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Hoang Van Thu Park covers 10.65 hectares. Established in 1989, this triangular-shaped park is bordered by Hoang Van Thu, Phan Dinh Giot, and Tran Quoc Hoan streets.

The park is divided by Phan Thuc Duyen Street, with its two parts connected by a pedestrian bridge. It features serene pathways shaded by lush foliage, providing a popular retreat for locals and tourists alike seeking entertainment, exercise, and relaxation. However, the surrounding streets often experience congestion, particularly during peak hours, owing to its proximity to the airport, which may affect the park’s tranquility at times.
