A great park with both a Cathedral and a war Memorial

It's worth a visit. Well layer out park, plenty of places to sit and enjoy it's beauty. The memorial to 28 Guardsman is evocative, full of strength and courage.

This park has lots of things to see. Check out the 100 year old Russian Orthodox all wooden church or the Soviet Union war memorial...or just walk the paths of the park and soak it all in. Just a beautiful park and lots to see and experience.

We loved to stroll thru Panfilov Park to cool down from Almaty summer heat. A great place to watch locals late afternoon and to explore its war memorial places. Kids will enjoy plenty of play option. An amazing park in the very green Almaty city.

calm. I love walking through Panfilov Park. It's calm and relaxing. The Orthodox church always makes a nice stop, especially when there's a service and you can hear the choir. The 28 Soldier memorial is extraordinary as well. Worth checking out while you are visiting Almaty.

Here, you'll find tributes to Russian heroes, the 2nd tallest wooden building in the world, a museum of musical instruments, and a bevy of bridal parties taking their pictures in front of the massive sculpture and the stairs. It's a lovely shaded respite from the warm streets of Almaty.

Initially I felt intimidated by the giant statue dwarfing this U-shaped area. It shows an indomitable soldier launching forth into battle and has a suggestion of light to it. In the "wings" are figureheads from the past with clear ethnic features that illustrate the complex history of this region. The eternal flame is at the end of an extremely long... More

A fresh green lung in the city. Beautiful flowers and trees with an amazing aroma of pine. If you are a business trip take 30 minutes to relax unwind and refresh at this beautiful park. The memorislsnd sculptures were imposing without being heavy duty Soviet.

Beautiful to walk through during spring or fall season. The tributes to the 28 Panfilov Heroes is rather artistic and interesting. The gardens are nice and there is a lovely church near by. Recommended!

A very nice park in Almaty. If the weather is good it's the best place to spend time on weekend or on holidays. You can find there a lot of historical monuments and buildings.

Very nice park to walk around in Spring. Close to the Green Bazar and a variety of museums. Don't forget visiting the church in the park.
