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.

A place to watch locals - all ages - while licking the most tasty ice-cream in the world. there are no violins playing in the old pavilion, but loudspeakers are doing (not) the same job.

It seems like everyone from tourists to locals frequent the Garden. It is highlighted by the Cathedral, but has souvenier vendors, artists, children's playgrounds, and restaurants.
