Ștefan cel Mare Central Park (Romanian: Grădina Publică „Ștefan cel Mare” / Parcul „Ștefan cel Mare”) is the main park in Central Chișinău, Moldova. It is the oldest park in Moldova and spans about 7 hectares (17 acres). It has gained the nickname "The Park of the Lovers" in Chișinău due to its popularity as a meeting spot for couples. The park contains 50 species of trees, some of which are quite old, the mulberries and acacias being between 130 and 180 years. The Alley of Classics is located in the park.

The park was originally laid out in 1818 by Russian military engineers during the reign of Alexander I. Under the direction of architect Bogdan Eitner, the present-day alleys were created, as well as hundreds of acacias, limes, and flower beds. The park was initially enclosed by a wicker fence to prevent cows, goats, and other animals from entering.
