Founded in 1711, in honour of the victory over the Swedes in may 1703 year and presented by Peter wife Ekaterina. Peter later spent 1 there may celebrations in memory of the victory (maëvki). The Park and the city had 3 name: Catherinehof, 1 May and 30 anniversary of VLKSM.

In the middle of the Park the monument to the defenders of Krasnodon molodogvardejcam. From the side street. Kalinina worth Molvinskaâ column, named Molvina sugar mill, which had financed the project. She established Monferanom and is the prototype of Alexandria that the Palace.
