History of El Goli Park
It was during the reign of the Aq Qoyunlu Dynasty that the construction of the pool in El Goli Park was first established. The water in the pool acted as a source for watering the gardens around the Eastern region of Tabriz.
The pool was emptied of water and was filled with pebbles, sand, and the waste produced in the surrounding area during the Safavid era. Quite the contrary, much care was given to El Goli Park in the Qajar era. Some routes were constructed around the pool for ease of walking. Many trees of different kinds were also planted for the sake of beauty. The two-storey mansion was also built in the center of the pool upon the command of the ruler of the time.
The municipality of Tabriz became responsible for the management of the park in the Pahlavi era to make it a recreational center for its visitors. The mansion was destructed in 1967 and got its present structure in 1970 with the contributions and investments of the Municipality of Tabriz.
According to El Goli Park’s name, El means ‘people’ and Gol means ‘pool’ in the Turkish language. Therefore, El Goli means a pool that belongs to people.
