Comana Natural Park

Comana Natural Park is probably the nearest place to Bucharest for a getaway where you can also explore some outdoor activities. The protected area includes both a forest area and a marshland. This makes it ideal for various outdoor activities with the family, in a group, as a couple, or even solo. The Comana pond and the nearby swampy area (with the canals that open through the reeds) is also called the Neajlov Delta and is a hotspot for water sports lovers.

The park is a special conservation area with a protection regime for several species of spontaneous flora ( butcher's-broom or peonies) and fauna. The park includes the Ologa-Grădinari Forest and Padina Tătarului Forest reservations.

Until a few years ago, many cross-country cyclists took to the few unmarked trails around the park, because of their wilderness and the numerous possibilities to observe some plants. The tourist development of the area in recent years has led to the emergence of many other possibilities for recreational activities:

  • themed cycle tours
  • guided walks through the park with the observation of plant species and fauna
  • sports grounds (basketball, football, table tennis tables, badminton area)
  • adventure park (with multiple activity options, separate from those in the large park)
  • kayak rides
  • restaurants
  • birdwatching in specially arranged observation points
  • horse riding
  • one-day camps for schoolchildren (to learn practical wildlife survival activities)
  • creative workshops (at the Paper Mill)

There's not a perfect season to visit the Comana Natural Park. For those passionate about photography or biology, it is recommended to visit with a certified guide for floristic observation purposes.

Balta Comana is the second most important place for biodiversity after the Danube Delta.
