  • Хороший чистый парк
  • Otshichnejshee place for walks together or family. There is free Wi-Fi everywhere are facing benches, play music. Lighting is, although in some places a bit dark. The Park territory is large enough, it is even a real forest, owl is there in swampy lowlands. The Park is ideal for cycling, not relief will keep, even newbies will be where the ride.
