Impressive war memorials and statues. Colourful Orthodox cathedral. Nice to stroll around and get a feel for an Almaty Sunday morning.

The beautiful floral artistry that adorned the vast expanse of this park is worth seeing. For this it is necessary to come in summer. In winter though, the "white leaves of the trees are something to send someone into meditation. The heroes memorial has a larger than life affect, that draws you into the feelings and experiences of those heroes.... More

Good place to visit while in Almaty, the cathedral is located there along to the eternal flame honoring the war hereos. The president park is better I believe in terms of bigger size, and a wider variety of trees, and plants and a place away from the city.

This park is a great place to spend a quiet, sunny afternoon. The war heroes memorial and eternal flame offer a solemn place for reflection. People still leave flowers at the site, which is a touching gesture of respect. The beautiful tall trees provide a buffer against the noise and bustle of the city, and offers the park visitor some...

A very nice central park, mainly known for the Zenkov's Cathedral at its center, but it also has monuments, water basins, a war memorial and at its edge the museum of folk museum - a must to see in Almaty

I visited Panfilov park in Autumn, which is a good time to be strolling the city in general; the weather is cool to mild, and the many tree lined "strip parks" of the town are a joy to stroll. The central attraction is the Zenkov Cathedral (see my other review) but to the front & rear of it there are... More

The main attraction in the park is the beautiful, multi-coloured Zenkov Cathedral. But there is also a memorial to war heroes as well as a nice park to walk around. Definitely worth a visit.

If you visit Almaty only for few days probably you will not get the chance to visit this park. But if you live in Almaty and especially in this area then you would probably go for a walk in it or just cross it on your way to the Green Market or the cathedral. On one side of the park... More
