Nicolae Romanescu Park (Romanian: Parcul Nicolae Romanescu) is a park in Craiova, Romania. It was designed by the French architect Edouard Redont and constructed between 1901 and 1903. It is considered the largest natural park in eastern Europe.[citation needed] It has an area of around 23 acres (9.3 ha) and the area of the lake within the park is about 10 acres (4.0 ha).
