  • This park is a must if you are visiting Kharkiv. It has something for everyone. Kids can have a great time here. I highly recommend a visit to this park. It is the best park I have seen. If you don't feel energetic, just sit and watch others enjoying themselves.
  • Nice place to relax. Periodically performance from a different people. Many attractions. There are places to have fun with kids. Ferris wheel is very impressive. It's size is amazing and it works almost all time: you can see both daily and nightly city.
  • My son loves the park, but it's not for kids only, it caters for all ages. It's always pristine clean, very modern and relatively cheap (for one ride).
