Lenin park in Hanoi is not so important monument, it is like an amusement park.
Most of the historical sites in Hanoi is located west of Hoan Kiem Lake. Lenin park is located on Dien Bien Phu street (as the name of the town), approximately 1.5 km from the lake on the way to Ho Chi Minh mausoleum. It is not historically significant place in Hanoi, but for a shorter break and watching the local people is not bad.
Skateboards, roller skates, bicycles, football, tai-chi but also motorbikes.
Just opposite this park are far more important historical sights of Hanoi – Hanoi Flag tower, Vietnam Military History Museum and the Imperial Citadel of Thăng Long. Almost every day, especially the afternoon you will see a lively and actively-based young and older people. It drives here on skateboards, roller skates, bicycles or play soccer. Park is freely accessible to everyone.
