As eventually the beach gets too cold - (or too hot) one wants to find other things to do. Luckily, I met a lady who was so kind to point me in the right direction. I told her that my son needs to get out, and she told me about this park. Then we found out this park is right in front of the Göynük Canyon - also a nice place to visit, so we decided to make a day trip out of it.
When we came to the park, the owner greeted us in perfect german and showed us around a bit, but we were too late (for us) to start climbing this day. But, we came back the weekend after and were greeted with much care. So much, that I even let my daughter try out the childrens course. I think, I was more scared than she was. Nevertheless, the kids had so much fun, that we are going as often as time allows.

My kids like it better than the beach, I like being in the woods and go for a nice walk.  The workers there are super friendly. They speak English, German, Russian and of course turkish. They take good care in explaining how things work and guide you through and especially for the kids - they never go alone.
I will write a more detailed review of the park and how it is run in the rewiew later.
The park sits in the woods and is build into the woods, so I enjoyed the shade and a cup of coffee, while the kids went climbing. We had so much there, that of course, I had to tell my school buddies about it. A very nice couple from Denmark. We decided to go together and luckily they had a camera, so now I can share the fotos.
If you are not too pooped it is nice to visit the canyon and there are some really nice walkways around the area that are free also. It sits close to a national park. Also, I recommend Ali's Café - but this is also to come in a review. Once I have a camera.
It is great for a day, when it is too crowded at the beach or for those who enjoy a forrest over a beach. They also offer night climbing. Well, just take a look for yourself
