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

  • 2016 and the time felt right to buy a property in Turkey to use as a family holiday home and possible rental.

    We had been looking for the perfect location and a trustworthy company for quite a while, when by chance my husband was introduced to Apo. It became clear very quickly that Angel Homes were very professional, offering a superb, friendly service.

    Whilst already on holiday in Turkey, June 2016 we decided to go and look at some land in Ovacik.  Apo collected us from our hotel, nothing was too much trouble.  We were never put under any pressure to buy, just made to feel relaxed and very welcome.  They answered any questions we had.  We went away and whilst enjoying the rest of our holiday, we did some thinking. We decided to buy a property before returning home.  I must also thank Donna for all her help, always there keeping us up to date with the progress of the build and sending lots of photos. 

    Now very excited and looking forward to spending many holidays in the sunshine in our new Prestige Villa, due for completion June 2017.

    We cannot recommend Angel Homes enough, it’s been a pleasure to get to know the whole team and make new friends.  Thanks again.

    Fantastic Service with great after sales care

  • We have been coming to turkey for over 14 years and had had property there for almost the same length of time.

    We have recently had a new property built by Angel Homes and maintained by them for over three years now.

    Angel Homes have taken all the worry out of owning a property and making sure that when we come to Turkey we do nothing but enjoy ourselves. 

    That could be from the excellent way that they maintain and look after the property to the great times we have when we are with them at one of their facilities.

    All in all the best place to be in the world and the best people to be looked after by.

    Fantastic builds with high quality finish

  • 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.
