Entrance to the park is free for citizens and open all day throughout the year. The entrance / exit to the park exists on three sides of the park. The main entrance to the park is on the road that follows the coast, Obala kneza Trpimira, while the second entrance is from S.S. Kranjčević street next to the Ambulance above the park. Finally, there is the third entrance from the area which serves as a parking lot for teachers of the nearby high school.

How to get there? Google Map location  

The park is located in the wider center of the city of Zadar, outside the peninsula, but close to it – on the opposite shore from the mainland. Since the park is a 20-minute walk from the old town, it is easily accessible on foot. Moreover, as there are Zadar barkajoli (boatmen) on that stretch, the route can be shortened and even more beautiful by a boat ride, which the pocket map down suggests. On the other hand, a bus station is 50 meters away from the park gates and bus lines that lead to and from the sphinx are No. 5 and No. 8, both of which can be found on this link. It is also possible to reach the park by car, but parking is difficult and only possible in the area behind the nearby Franjo Petrić High School.

Green cadastre Green cadastre  

The Green Cadastre was created as part of the Urban Green Belts project co-financed by the European Union, which was implemented by the City of Zadar as an associate partner. It shows a map of existing plants in the park, and by clicking on the desired selection, it displays the name of the chosen plant species accompanied with a photo.
