Always worth a visit with kids
Aug 2021 • Family
The classic weekend location in summer and very well-known for many good installations for kids. It‘s always worth a walk when the weather is good. During this time (still summer holidays) it’s not crowded and the waiting time for attractive installations is short.

Very worth to take a walk through
May 2019
A very special place to see, I would suggest going for a little while, no need to spend much time here, but it is a beautiful big park, in winter they change it into an ice skating rink, that would be really cool to see and go!!!

Well improved!

The park was renovated and we were surprised to see how it changed. There are places to eat and to rest - even benches for lying near the pond, different activities: 2/3/4 wheels bikes for rent/the Moskva river trips/exhibitions/skating rinks in winter! One of the best places to visit in Moscow!

Great in winter..can’t imagine how awesome in summer
Jan 2020 • Couples
Loads of ways to walk around and enjoy experience and art. Museums, sport and activity options, food places and lots and lots of other things. In winter of course you are missing beauty of flowers and green plants but lights, sculptures and so on makes up for it! Now in winter ice skating arena helps to have more fun... tho q was heavy. Definitely interesting to be and even more if with someone who knows about park and tells you stories.

It’s December do not expect much
Dec 2019 • Couples
Most cafes and restaurants are closed since most visitors are actually just crossing to reach other places, there’s an ice rink operating, but nothing going on at the pavilions, some remodeling still going on.
The nicest thing was to walk by the embankment and enjoy spotting the raddisson cruise navigating towards the red October district and appreciating the huge scale of the Defense Ministry office’s across the river.

A large park on the banks of the Moskva River.
May 2019
There are pleasant green areas and trees. Sections of the park are decorated with statues, some of them being from the Communist era. Not wanting to destroy history or statues, the Russians simply moved a lot of the Communist era statues to this park, which is a sensible idea. A building of the Tretyakov Gallery is also hosted in the park. Every pathway and corner seems to hold the possibility of some little surprise when you explore it. The only caveat would be to not spend too much time here if time is short, as it is a large park and if you only have a few days in Moscow, your time may be better spent elsewhere.
