Chitgar Park

Chitgar Forest Park is situated in Tehran province, Iran. It is an artificial forest and covers an area of 14.5 square kilometers west of Tehran. It lies within the borders of Tehran's district 22. It also has different ramps and facilities for cycling and skating. It is one of the largest parks of the province, and can be used throughout the year. This park is very popular with the population of Tehran and Karaj, and being situated on the way of the West-East wind in the province it has a purifying effect on Tehran's air.

The Chitgar park is served by a highway and a metro line. The metro station is also called Chitgar. The forest areas of this huge park are irrigated by the rivers Kan and Vardavard. A man-made lake is planned for construction between the two Chitgar hills.
