Having worked in Yuzhno for many years, always looked forward to the summers in the Gagarin Park. Plenty of very reasonable drinking establishments, Lots to do for the families even just walking through the park was a pleasure. In the winter it is a lot bleaker. Really miss my good times there.

I was in Yuzhno during summer 2011. In the morning you'll find kids playing and adults sunbathing while in the evening you will find lovers spending their time together. I used to enjoy the evening after biking around Yuzhno in the evening.

It's a lovely spot to visit in the winter too. There is an ice skating rink and place to stop for something to eat and drink. They hold the 'Blessing of the Water Ceremony' there in the winter! 2014, it was -19 and they swam in the water after it was blessed!

Not a bad day out for a change if just going for a walk, maybe bite to eat and few beers. Be prepard to pee in the woods as toilet facilities very basic and not many around

I had heard about the park before i went and wasn't really expecting much but i was quite surprised when i visited it. The park is quite big, it can be a challenge to find parking outside it with many people parking on the side of the roads - the Mega Palace Hotel and the Zoo are close by so... More

This park is alive with many local people and they hold carnivals every weekend. Small eateries are abundant and there are also a few places to eat by the lake. There's a zoo but didn't have the chance to visit

A great place to have some fun when in Yuzhno-Sakhalin. There is a fun-fair fairground type area which is great for the kids, there are lots of kiosks and bar/restaurant facilities where on can buy drinks and food (mainly shashlik), a word of warning there have been a few instances of people complaining about sore tummies after eating shashlik in...

This park is on the east side of Yuzhno, just down the hill from the ski center and near Glory Park. I visited this several times during the time I was there and found something new each time. There is an amusement park for kids, a lake with paddle boats and alcoholic beverages for adults, and a walking path thru... More

Gregarin Park consists of woodland with various paths running through it, a river, a boating lake and a railway line. It's typical temperate forest with coniferous and hardy deciduous trees such as silver birch and willows. At weekends many local Russians descend on the park to ride the white pedlo-type swans on the boating lake and to ride the whistling... More
