30/4 Park is named after Vietnam's Liberation Day, 30th of April. It is beautifully located between the Reunification Palace and Notre Dame Cathedral in the center of Ho Chi Minh City, thus a lot of people enjoy chatting with friends and having a drink in this park.

For a city that is well known for its noise, chaotic traffic & general busyness, HCMC also has its fair share of very chilled out parks. 30/4 Park is one such place that offers a welcome break from the continually hectic environment. It is easy to reach & is very close to other attractions including Notre Dam Cathedral, Diamond Plaza & Reunification Palace. The park is named after Liberation Day, 30th April & is certainly a peaceful place for contemplation.

The trees here are fantastic, tall, mature & the source of shade that is another appealing factor of this park. This is a great place to sit, enjoy a drink, unwind & pass the time. Its location makes it a perfect place to take a break if one is undertaking a walking tour of the main attractions in the vicinity. The park is very well kept, cool & very clean thanks to the presence of litter pickers.

It is very popular with locals & tourists alike, most people come here to people watch, relax or just enjoy the lovely environment. There are hawkers but not an excessive amount, one can purchase a coconut, a drink, have a shoe polish, fruit or indeed a combination of all of these!

I full heartedly recommend a visit to 30/4 Park, it is a relaxing spot & certainly a great place to cool down on a hot day. Five stars for 30/4 park, it does all it should & even more.
