Thong Nhat park is located in Dong Da district in downtown Hanoi. It is surrounded by Tran Nhan Tong, Le Duan, Dai Co Viet, and Nguyen Dinh Chieu streets. The park covers an area of more than 50ha. It is an elegant place in Hanoi.
Thong Nhat 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 Vietnamese 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 Street, and 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 Thong Nhat park Hanoi.
