First President's Park, Almaty

(4.4/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Relax and enjoy the large fountain at First President's Park, a 73 hectare (180 acre) arboretum set against a backdrop of spectacular mountains. Opened in 2013, the park features an elegant turquoise-domed observation deck and a curved colonnade with a marble arch commemorating the country's independence. Meanwhile, an elaborate fountain with light and music shoots water up to 30 m (98 ft). Paved lanes, flower beds, birch and fir trees, and numerous benches create an easy atmosphere for a stroll. Take some water with you as there are no shops in the park.

  • The Park is large and very beautiful alleys, benches, places for relaxing and walking. Convenient location, parking is available on both sides. Suitable for walks with children. Beautiful in any season, in summer a large fountain, a variety of flowers bloom. Fall foliage trees painted in different colours, all winter in a white headdress.
