It says a lot about Ukraine and Odessa that a small little park can create such joy and commotion. On a warm day watch it come alive with performers, vendors, hawkers, kids and people dancing for no reason. Do watch out for anyone with an animal such as an eagle, crocodile (yes a crocodile) or rabbit. They will ask you... More

During the day, in tourist season, it is a cooler oasis in a hot city. For this reason, it comes alive in the evening, people dancing in the gazebo (think big gazebo, not a tent, more like an English bandstand, see picture). The park is surrounded by restaurants, see individual recommendations for these places. On a summer's evening, this place... More

Refreshing green part of the centre - near the end of De Ribas street. It's really small as a park, so don't be disappointed by its size. It lost somehow its character after recent renovations, but nevertheless it's full of pleasant small monuments and other attractions. One can have some rest after strolling the streets and eat something.

A great place to sit and people watch on a hot day. Green grass and big mature trees. Plenty of restaurants providing good food and beer.

in the summer there are many concerts in the park. Some good restaurants near the park. A nice place to watch people passing by. A well-kept oasis in the middle of the city.

When visiting Odessa I planned on proposing to my girlfriend. When reaching the City Garden and walking through you'll find that cute big pavillion in the middle of it right next to the fountain. Perfect place! People enjoying the green plants and colorful flowers, and the fountain. Somewhere you'll hear a street musician playing music with an accordion...absolutely relaxing and... More
