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...

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.

A busy local park, on a pleasant day you can buy an ice cream and go for a stroll. We enjoyed the monument to the 12 Chairs on the corner. Also you can pick up one of the tour trollies on the street there, but be sure to bargain over the price.

Lively and safe park in the middle of the city with families and couples strolling in the evening. Sometimes quite crowded and touristique.
