It's a wonderful place to walk with children. So many old and high trees, green grass all around. Also there are zoo, different attractions and cafes.

A large park. Nicely kept but most activities are for kids. A fair walk from the city centre. You can walk here from Gogol Street where Panfilov park is. About a 20 minute walk. A map showed a lake but I didn't walk that far. Nice in summer... I imagine in winter it's a bit miserable

Definitely a must-visit on a trip to Almaty, this is a beautiful park with the centerpiece being its Disney style cathedral.

This is one of the nicest parks that I've had the pleasure to visit in a long time. The park is vast and very clean. Definitely a must see destination.

The just budding trees and newly planted flower beds indicate just how verdant this place will be from mid April. The walk around was a welcome respite from the traffic and fumes of the sidewalk. Lots of benches for conversation or people watching.
