Tabi’at bridge, which is considered to be the biggest passenger bridge in Iran, has got three stages and is built so that the capital-dwellers have a chance to experience taking a long walk with family and can enjoy group walks and jogging without being troubled by the presence of the cars and other vehicles together with friends and family. At one end, Tabi’at Bridge ends in ayatollah Taliqani Jungle Park and its other end takes you to Aab va Aatash park. In summer, due to the green landscape all around it and also due to the picturesque of Alborz Mountains on north, the bridge is quite spectacular.

 

In the bridge's path, there are resting places designed with the most ideal urban furniture and platforms for the citizens' sitting down and getting rest. Moreover, there are many cafés and restaurants located on the path of the bridge which have provided the opportunity for the citizens to try delicious and diverse tastes and flavors and have more fun and enjoy this experience to a great extent. Tabi’at or Nature Bridge is considered as the youngest tourist attraction of Tehran and it is hardly over three years, that is, 2014. It is said that the bridge is fully resistant against earthquake and can even tolerate and resist against earthquakes as intense as 7 degrees on Richter scale.

You can get to the bridge from both ayatollah Taliqani and Aab va Aatash parks. The closest subways station to the bridge is that of Shahid Haqqani. Taliqani Park is located right adjacent to the subway station. After about a twenty minute talk, you will find yourself right on the bridge.

 

However, if you wish to go to Tabi’at Bridge by private car, there are two main ways to take. One is to take Mir'damad Street and from there enter Africa Street - also called nelson Mandela Street - and then drive north. But keep in mind that you need to look for a parking spot before the end of the street and getting to the end of the highway since naturally you will not be able to park in the highway.

 

The other way is to enter Haqqani highway, from west to east, and then enter the street located between Taliqani Bostan or park and the museum-garden of Iran-Iraq war memorial. In overall, mind that on holidays, it might be difficult to find some available parking spot.
