The Central Park is one of the main green spaces in Cluj-Napoca, founded in 1827. The Association for the Welfare of Women (Jóltevő Asszonyi Egyesület) rented the land to establish a recreation place. In 1830, after the completion of the landscaping works, the People's Park (Népkert) was opened to the public. Since 1860 the Park Administration has been taken over by the Park Committee led by Count Imre Mikó.

Since 1865, the Sétatér-Egylet Park Association has been established, which dug the lake and built the pavilion of music. In 1871 the Skating Association rented the lake. Between 1896 and 1897, the skating pavilion and kiosk with the beautiful fountain were designed by Lajos Pákey. The skating pavilion is located on the lake and the frozen lake has been a skating rink until the early 90's.

In the kiosk there was a restaurant and a beerhouse, very popular among the Cluj people. The post-1990s are still thinking of restoring the building, but nothing has yet been accomplished.
