surrounded by Tran Nhan Tong, Le Duan, Dai Co Viet, and Nguyen Dinh Chieu
streets in Hanoi.
Characteristics: Thong Nhat Park covers an area of more than 50ha. It is an
elegant place in Hanoi.
The park was built in 1958 and
inaugurated in 1960. At that time, the country was divided into two parts
with two different political regimes; the park was named Thong Nhat, meaning
"united," to express the hope of reunification of the people.
In April 1980, on the 110th anniversary of Lenin’s birthday, Thong Nhat Park
was renamed Lenin Park. Nowadays, Lenin Park is situated on Dien Bien Phu
St. Thong Nhat Park has its original name.
The park features many gardens
and trees, as well as an island in the middle of the lake. There are games
for children such as driving carts, a mirror house, train rides, and boats
on the lake.
During Tet holiday, the Spring Flower Festival is held in the park.
