Sehit Fethi Bey Park, Fethiye

Sehit Fethi Bey Park - A wonder to behold

At last Fethiye has its very own recreational park and not only is it an amazing space for the whole family its the biggest recreational space in the region!

The park is proudly named after Sehit Fethi Bey who was originally an airline pilot from this region. In 1914 he attempted to make a flight from Istanbul to Cairo before anyone else had even thought of it.

Sadly on February 27th 1914 he was killed when his aircraft crashed between Damascus and Jerusalem and was awarded the title Sehit, which translates to martyr (a name given to the fallen in the milirary.) Before 1934 the town was known as Telmessos and Makri but was changed to Fethiye in honour of the fallen pilot.

This area was an expanse of bog and waste land before work started over 12 months ago. It is now a magnificent show case of art and green space not to mention that you can now walk from Calis to Fethiye on the new coastal path.

Or maybe you would prefer to walk through the park where you will find a fabulous array of sculptures, winding paths, tunnels and bridges. There is also a cycle path for those of you who wish to use peddle power.

There are many places to sit and contemplate and wonder at the giant snails, galloping horses, metal scultptures and wooden structures. The kids will have a ball as the park has the usual swings and slides but it also boasts a scate/bike park, climbing areas and basket ball court.

So we have green spaces, sculptures,  structures, kids area, winding pathways, tunnels and bridges but this beautiful park is laced with waterways and canals straddled by rope bridges and glass bottommed bridges with windmills and water wheels a plenty. All canals merge at the pond where there is ample seating to sit and watch the water and eventually the wildlife that is sure to come.

And to top it all the park changes at night and is cleverly illuminated to give you a completely different perspective of light and dark, neon and colur.

At the centre of the park is the man himself, set on a marble stage, Sehit Fethi Bey looks over the vista and the people of the town who hold him dear in their hearts

This wonderful jewel in Fethiye's crown is just opposite the state hospital in Calis, it is free to enter, has ample parking, easy for public transport and also has a bike parking station.

This park is definitely worth a visit, not just once but over and over again. You are guaranteed to see something different every time.

 

Testimonial Style 03

  • I would like to express my thanks to Angel Homes in helping me find my dream property in Turkey.  From the initial enquiry with Donna right through to the purchase of the apartment and after sales I found both Donna, Emin and every member of the team both extremly helpful and Professional.

    On my further visit to Turkey I then purchased a villa through Angel Homes as an investment property and they are now renting these properties for me an investment return.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Angel Home if you are thinking of purchasing a property.  They will put every effort in for you and continue to do so after purchase. 100% trustworthy.

    Excellent Team and Customer Service

  • The team at Angel Homes have been fantastic in providing support, advice and guidance in buying our first home in Turkey.



    Hayley, Emin & Denise all took the time and care to explain everything, make sure we knew what was happening and offer any support we needed

     

    Due to work commitments we was able to leave the final purchase of the property in their capable hands whilst we went back to the UK

     

    I’d highly recommend them for your apartment / villa purchase.





    FANTASTIC ADVICE AND SUPPORT FROM START TO FINISH

  • I Have known the guys from Angel Homes for over 7 years now and can guarantee that they will go the extra mile to make your holiday, your villa purchase or your restaurant experience the very best that they can.

    From arriving at the airport to returning home, these guys work extremely hard to make your visit to Turkey a special one. Nothing is too much trouble.

    They will visit during your stay in one of their beautiful Villas in the first couple of days to see how you are and then tailor their service to your needs.

    When/if you are interested in buying a property, they will listen carefully to your requirements and try their very best to show you only suitable properties and give an honest appraisal of the buying process and owning property in Turkey.
