The park is lovely and has a lot of attractions. Make sure you check beforehand the hours (those tend to be weird, such as stuff being closed mondays). Also, some tickets can be bought only through internet.

It's great to try all the entertaining museums in this huge park, walking through lots of Soviet architectural monuments, plus watching lovely dolphins and see lions shows at the new Aquarium Park. You should wear modest clothes and sneakers so you can walk long distances.
