  • Nice place in the centre of the city. Tranquil and peaceful. For sure it needs more update and improvement, but still the place is worth to visit, amazing trees and long alleys. Autumn is stunning here 😍😍😍

  • A little bit old but very nice

  • Not very decent except the mini Japanese garden. The rest of the place isn't tidy at all, just as most parks in KZ
