The park has several entrances which makes it easy to even walk through if you are going towards say Mega Palace hotel to the city area. The park has a train which will take you through the east side of the park for 110 Rubbles in 15 min. Runs only from 11 am till 6 pm - 30 min once.... More

The park has a couple of cafe's, my favourite one is the traditional Yurt. There is a lake and it has a stunning view on the mountain. You could eat some shaslick from the barbecue places they have.

We unfortunately went in the winter, but still enjoyed the park covered with few feet of snow. KIds can play around on snow bikes. I went around for a walk and loved it.

The train around the park is a great attraction, however just a walk through the Forrest, or the fair ground in the park are all great ways to spend a couple of hours. There are also so places to get a drink or a snack which we didn't use, however seem very suited for beautiful weather days. Now there are... More

The biggest park in the Russian Far East region, it merges with the woods. It's well-kept, has plenty of benches along the main alleys, as well as on the side walks. The park has a pond with boat rides, a theme park with small swings and roller coasters, several cafes and a stadium. The miniature rail road (on the photo)... More

Been through here many times as it is on the way to work. There is a tourist train ride and the tickets and stop is near the lake. Not sure what happened, but sometimes the lake is quite full, sometimes quite empty. When it is full, the whole place is very pretty because of the nearby zoo, mountain and mega... More

We used to come here every summer for a beer and a shashlik but now there is no outdoor drinking. Still a great place to come in summer to get out of the city.
