Mellat Park (Persian:پارک ملت, pronounced [P穩k-e Mellat]) is a park in Tehran, the capital city of Iran.

Known as the Shahanshahi Park (Imperial Park) prior to the revolution of 1979, it is one of the largest recreation areas in Tehran.[1] It is situated at the foot of the Alborz mountains adjacent to Valiasr Street in the east, and extends to the Chamran Expressway (Parkway) and Seoul Street to the west. The park lies south of the Tehran International Fair grounds and the Enghelab Club. It has pathways for walking and shade for picnics and relaxation as well as facilities such as snack bars, coffee shops, and a small aviary. At the edge of the park is a new Cineplex. Mellat Park is watered by the winter-snow streams coming down from Mt. Tochal close to 4,000 m high.

The Mellat park is also the location of one of the steam-powered locomotives used on the first Persian railway section built during 1886-1888 [1]. The No. 664 locomotive was built by the Belgian Ateliers de Tubize and commissioned on 1887.

Mellat Park is home to the first musical fountains in Tehran.Since July 2008, they attract and entertain many families at night.[2]

P穩k-e Mellat is also the name of several other parks across Iran, for example in Ahvaz, Bushehr and Mashhad.
