This summer was a record-breaking one, with a total of two million visitors to City Park, Metropol reports. The majority of people love the well-kept and sophisticated green spaces, the cleanliness of the air and the area, and the fact that, unlike many other city-maintained parks in Budapest, there are plenty of bins and the environment is child- and animal-friendly.
The park, which used to be run-down, has now been transformed into a family park. It was also recalled that the renovation of the park started ten years ago and that the Liget Budapest project has exceeded the initial expectations, even though the development is not yet complete.
This summer alone, the Hungarian House of Music attracted 400,000 visitors, meaning that in a short time it has surpassed all Hungarian cultural institutions in terms of popularity and has become a major player in the cultural life of the capital.
It is also worth noting that it has become one of the most-posted buildings in the country, with its iconic glass wall, among other things, being captured in countless photos and videos.

A mother told the newspaper that she goes there almost two or three times a week from Újpest. “It is the new City Park that makes us come so far. Of course, my son and I always spend a couple of hours in the playground,” she explained.
Another visitor from Tatabánya said:
“I send a lot of likes to the designers of the City Park! I am very enthusiastic about the whole thing! The design of the square, the way the paths are, there are so many bins. Those who have dogs are also different here, somehow they are more responsible, the puppies are well behaved,” she concluded.
