The park is a typical Soviet park, with the eternal flame and war monuments. Of which, the largest monument was as usual the WWII monument.

Park has the russian church along with WW1 and WW2 monuments that date back to soviet period. Make sure to explore all the little nooks and crannies of the park as there are plenty of hidden little monuments. Nice place to spend a couple of hours.

The Panfilov Park has a towering monument, remembering the fallen Kazakhs during WWII and in honor of General Panfilov. On a sunny day, it is very nice. There is the Zenkov Cathedral there and the Musical Instruments Museum. Don't miss the square where kids can go and buys food for the pigeons. It attracts thousands of them and is quite... More

For the military/historians there is the memorial of the 28 soldiers of an Almaty infantry unit who died in WW2. For musicians, there is an excellent Folk Musical Instrument Museum. For families, the grounds are pleasant to... More

This lovely memorial park is peaceful and full of old-growth trees. There is a sense of history here. It is a good place to meet locals and just relax in the shade. The Museum of Folk Music Instruments is nearby, as well as Zenkov Cathedral.

A great park to spend some time there. It is a good park for both couples, families with kids or for enjoying your time alone by walking in there or just reading a book. Sportsman would also like running in there. Strongly recommended

It's just another park. Besides the church I doubt there is much reason to visit the park. There is also a big metal statue and some flame thing but nothing to rave about.
