El-Gölü (Azerbaijani: Él-Gölü, and Persian: ایل گلی) is the name of a large park in Tabriz, Iran. Early history of the El-Gölü is not clear. However, it seems that it was used as a water resource for agricultural purposes. It was used as a summer palace during the Qajar dynasty (when Tabriz was the official residence of Prince of Iran). It contains a palace that is surrounded by a great square water pool almost 12 meters deep. During 2nd Pahlavi's it was reconstructed.
After the Iranian Revolution of 1979 as normal process for that period for removing Shah name from everywhere the name of Shah-Gölü was changed to El-Gölü in official documents.
