Very pretty gardens with lots of benches to take in the views of the greenery and building which surround the area. Not much to do here but worth a visit.

Beautiful central fountain, plenty of benches and lots of kids playing, smack in centre. Bring a book and read in the sun and then visit a cafe or restaurant.

growing up in the beautiful city with so many attractive places the best summer memories I have of this park with its concerts in the theater, performances by military orchestra in its center, benches that allow relaxation, movie theater and its restaurant, and not to mention its statues (unfortunately the lions of my childhood are gone), and I can't forget...

City garden is located at the Deribasovska's top part, next to Preobrazhenska street and is also accessible from Lanzheronivska. Its a small park with big trees, fountain and pavilion to hide from rain or for band to play during sunday evenings. Its full with kids, some enjoying first steps, some trying to ride bicycles and elderly are enjoying the sun... More

While it was generally wet when we visited Odessa there were still people using the Garden for relaxation, for photography or just enjoying themselves. At night when the restaurants are busy there were a lot of people there eating and enjoying the open air (though it was rather chilly). A nice place to relax and unwind

We were there in February so the City Garden resembled more of a wasteland than a garden. But still it was interesting, and one could imagine it being beautiful in the summer. It is right in the heart of the "tourist area" of Odessa, and a good landmark to find your bearings.
