It’s an old park that was built by French on 1869; and nowadays, it’s a public place that people can go for exercising with many activities and sometimes, that park is used to held events.cong-vien-tao-danThis is my favorite park here in Saigon. A best places to wander around or exerciser after a stress day working. And with a camera, you can easily take many photos because this park has a lot of beautiful scenes. Recently, I usually come to this park for jogging in the afternoon. As many others do the same, you can feel the motivation and happy by not doing it alone. Along the way, you can see a lot of activities like Tai Chi, Aerobics, badminton, dancing, jogging, body building, etc. that make a vibrant picture inside a quiet park.
