First President's Park, Almaty
(4.3/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • a great place for family walks and still can do a lot of beautiful photos, especially on the output, you can see a lot of newlyweds who do their wedding pictures, because the presidential Park remains the leader photo shoot different event.

  • The Park grew in me-remember quite small trees. Now it is forest. The Park is beautiful at any time of year and day. Looks especially beautiful at night, when the park entrance is highlighted in the colors of the flag of Kazakhstan. Now in the forest live many'd like ... who take the nuts with your hands. Very quiet and good atmosphere-the locals strolling families, weddings, photo shoots can be found in nature. To feel the atmosphere of the city must visit in the Park.
