This is a nice if unspectacular park in the city centre. There are fountains and flowers that make it more pretty and good places to atop for refreshment, which was vital on the hot sunny Spring day of our visit.

It was winter when I visted, covered in snow, but still peaceful to walk through. I am sure this is a beautiful park in the spring/summer time.

I thought this was a nice place to go for walk or to just sit and talk. There are many activities for children here but not really for adults.

I've walked through this park several times during my visit. It's lovely and calm and there are quiet a few things to see like the 50th Parallel and the statue of Shevchenko. But it's best for people watching
