Handy for the large green market, where fresh herbs and pistachio nuts provide the best bargains, and also close to the excellent public baths and sauna, with plentiful markers and monuments of interest including the extraordinary Soviet war monument adjacent to the equally extraordinary pink Cathedral. Take a bench, read a book, watch old men play chess and young lovers... More

There are several parks in Almaty and this is one of them. Very nice place to walk and spend your time with family and kids.

I went with my family on an Almaty trip in August. WWII Memorial and Zenkhov Cathedral are the two highlights. There was plenty of shade and open space to relax and rest midway through an Almaty walking tour. You can grab a quick bite to eat, get a drink and play some games and let the kids run around. Generally... More

Beautiful park with marvelous trees and an Orthodox Church that deserve all the superlatives. I liked the folks songs performed by some local entertainers I disliked the communist statue of the general that gives the park's name

The park is very nice and well kept, just by Zenkhov Cathedral. WW2 memorial is worth a visit. As there is not that much see in this this city, why missing it?

A nice park and the monument is typical of the communist monuments all over Eastern Europe. It's a nice place to relax but there aren't enough places to sit down and during the summer it is crowded with newly weds having their photos taken. Actually it's annoying as you cannot move. I counted 12 couples on my last visit all... More

Nice park, a great (though controversal) WW2 memorial (not as good as Brest in Belarus or Kiev), a nice orthodox church, pleasent enough though have seen bigger and better parks.

The Church, museum and eternal fire in memory of the brave soldiers who were awarded the soviet star is worth seeing in this park

Spent around 5 hours here walking around and observing the local going about there daily business. It's very family oriented with pony ride and small kiddy amusements observing the amusements and the general ambience is like stepping into a past world. The gardens are well maintained and there are many little drink shops and ice cream parlours. Take in the... More

Watch the women with their children, the old women walking in pairs, young flirting couples kissing on the park bench, many monuments. A must see. Very peaceful
