First President's Park, Almaty

4.0
#5 of 14 in Parks in Almaty
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 .

  • Recently been in the Park company. Cool in the month of October there. Weather and nature the sad. Far to go to toilets, we were in the evening, the toilet in the middle of the Park was closed. Voobshchem froze and broke up.

  • The trees haven't grown, wasteland, nude and in the midst of this wasteland. Musical accompaniment of allegedly dancing fountain-raunch. With the same success you can walk on the football field. 30 years later, when the trees grow, you will go again. Although something tells me that after 30 years there will be private cottages difficult people. Wind blows, wear warmer if it's not July, of course.

  • Just tracks, just trees beautiful and different, just a view of the mountains and just culture circle! Even babies behave accordingly (Park name. well, I thought ...)! If you already have been everywhere in Almaty did not take the time and just walk, it is possible and you will have a memorable photo and excellent condition of the soul in this place ...

Where to stay in Almaty

Accommodations in the urban area of Almaty can be found almost exclusively in the grid-system city center. Located close to the main train station, you'll find hotels both upmarket and budget, with the former enjoying commanding views of the mountains on tree-lined boulevards, and the latter tucked away on the central district's side streets. Ski resorts to the south, as well as wild camping opportunities, provide good options for those wanting to get active and enjoy the surrounding landscape.
