Maksimir Park is the oldest public park in the Croatian capital, Zagreb. It covers over 780 acres and is a major part of the city's cultural heritage. The park was founded in 1787 and opened in 1794, it was then on the outskirts of the city but it has since seen the city built around it and even lost some of its original size to the city's infrastructure. The park has many lakes, creeks and green wooded areas with paths laid through it enabling the public to access all of its parts. The park also has some eye catching pavilions and structures as well as a zoo in the southern area of the park.
Situated in the Maksimir area of Zagreb, the park is accessible by the city's tram system with trams 4. 5. 7, 11 and 12 all providing access to the park; a less frequent 226 bus also serves the park.
