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. Plan your visit to First President's Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Almaty trip planner .

  • Clean air and place walks Young Park. While young trees, and the power of their forces years after another. A good place for probes and ride on rollers, bike. A quiet place

  • A great place for fresh air (which we have in town, alas, in short supply) and have a rest from city vanity. Winter oxygenated air, summer pleasant coolness from the mountains and from the fountains! The Park is suitable for family outings and sporting purposes) in summer you can have a little picnic on the lawn)

  • It is spread in a very big area in middle of city. Luckily there was a good snow fall on the day of our visit, we found beautiful snow covered landscapes. The place is worth visiting.  more »

  • One of the most beautiful parks in the city. Park has an incredible amount of space. It's right on the edge of the city, so the air up there is really fresh.
  • One of the finest parks ever made with taste and vision. Ideal for family weekend walks and suitable for outdoor cycling and jugging too!
  • Park is spacious and green, but couple of years ago people were not allowed to rest on the lawn, which kills the whole point of a park. Not sure if they changed that rule
  • Best place in the city to running and walking. Please note that parking after 7pm is free of charge.
  • Really impressed. Huge park. Mostly families, kids and couples around
