The renewal of the landscape architecture of the City Park has reached an important milestone: the long-awaited renewal of the Children’s Traffic Park and its surroundings, traditionally one of the Park’s most popular family-friendly destinations, has been completed. This renovated part of the park was officially opened by János Lázár, Construction and Transport Minister; László Baán, Ministerial Commissioner of the Liget Budapest Project; and Benedek Gyorgyevics, CEO of Városliget Zrt.

The renovation was realised within the framework of the Liget Budapest Project, thanks to which over 30 thousand square metres of park area was renewed, while 39 deciduous trees, over 5.6 thousand shrubs and some 22 thousand perennials were planted.

With the opening of the central element of the renovation project, a six-thousand-square-metre area presenting everyday traffic situations in a playful way, the family-friendly facilities of the City Park have been enriched with an attraction of comparable size, complexity and attractiveness to the Main Playground, which has so far attracted three million visitors. In the Traffic Park, children are awaited by miniature trains, planes, helicopters, a control tower, and even a miniature district, allowing them to practice the basics of safe traffic in an interactive environment. This investment constitutes the country’s largest and most complex transport-themed family play park.


On Saturday, 11 May 2024, on the Day of Transport Culture, visitors were able to use the largest and most complex transport-themed family play park in the country, built within the framework of the Liget Budapest Project. The opening date, the Day of Transport Culture, also draws attention to an important social message, namely that a basic knowledge of cultured and safe transport can be acquired by children in the modern and green environment in the City Park.


The Children’s Traffic Park, located in the north-eastern corner of the City Park, was first established in the 1970s and for a long time it was the largest educational park in Budapest, where thousands of children were able to learn the basic rules of road traffic. After the change in the political system, the park was unguarded and neglected, and over time it became completely dilapidated and unfit for use. Although non-profit organisations and companies carried out a minor renovation in 2006 using their own resources, the long-awaited complete rehabilitation of this park area was only possible thanks to the Liget Budapest Project.
