  • A very beautiful and well maintained park. Perfect for a relaxing walk. Comfortable benches to rest on if you are tired. 
  • The best Park in Ukraine at any time of the year. It is luxurious, clean, well maintained. Here the atmosphere of joy! Beauty everywhere! The Café on site is not impressive. WC very clean Park. No ATMs.

  • We prefered to live in Kharkiv city because of this park. There is no park in the world better than Gorky Park.
  • One of the best local attractions. I strongly recommend going on a cable car and enjoying the view of the park and the city. You can have a stroll with all you family or go for a jog on you own.
  • Absolutely fantastic park, a lifeline for our boys who can happily spend the whole day there. Tree rope walks are brilliant and the instructors excellent, so many playgrounds you could lose yourself.
  • It's a good place, which has a lot of attractions foe young and adults. But it's a crowded place. So if you want to have a romantic evening, you better go somewhere else 😄
  • What a beautiful park..nice ambience
