The relief of the territory is a slightly undulating plain. The true altitudes of the locality vary from 146 m (floodlands of the Yauza River) to 175 m above sea level. In the center part of the park relief is expressed weakly. The most picturesque locality is on the southwest of the park, where the above-floodplain terraces of the Yauza River are clearly expressed with the sufficiently steep slopes to its floodlands.

  • This Park Reserve deserves to come here from afar. Places absolutely wild nature, where wandering real Moose!, and made by caring hands of bird feeders, equipped children's playgrounds, picnic places. Utochkami pond, where we come to admire and, of course, feed. Maybe it would not hurt to add lights at least along asphalt track-autumn darkens early). But you can not walk before dark. Exit stone jungle and fall into a natural paradise-this is the place!

  • A great place for hiking and especially cycling. Conveniently located on the outskirts, but in the city, while in the southern tip of the park opened station CIP white stone. Visit the part inside the MKAD-free. In the park there are several paved paths, strolling in the Park live moose. Also an interesting object-abandoned warehouses near Whitestone with beautiful graffiti. The Park Administration is quite far from the Park, be careful!
