    Good, big, cultivated pond. Although it is of artificial origin, but is among the oldest in Moscow. While its water surface seems to be superior to all others. If to consider its both halfs (respectively, park and recreation area), which were formed as a result of laying Kashirsky highway through it. There are playgrounds, cafes (4 pieces - two of them in the beach area), two churches, sports grounds (tennis courts and even several football fields), fitness equipment, beach (but swimming is forbidden), dog walking places and much more.
    The district is among the most disadvantaged in Moscow in terms of environmental indicators. And this pond, the green spaces near it is a real salvation for the whole surrounding area.

    A stroll along the river gives you great views of the city. Don't miss going to the viewing platform in Zaryadye Park where you can walk out partly over the river.

    Although it's not a neighborhood tourists are likely to find themselves in, but if you happen to be in the vicinity the park's worth some time. There's a nice long boardwalk along the pond, some swinging 2- or 3-person benches and it's all maintained really well.

    Sokolniki is one of the best places for walks. Even if you go outside the park. This pond, for example, is not in the park. In general, there are a lot of ponds in the district - for example, in half a kilometer from Jaeger Pond are Nizhny Maysky Pond, Verkhny Maysky Pond, Verkhny Oleny (aka Verkhny Lebyazhy) Pond. A little further - Putyayevsky Ponds, Cherkizovsky (Arkhiyereysky) Pond, Serebryano-Vinogradny Pond, Bolshoy Ekaterininsky Pond and others. But this one's the best. It is not bathed, although the pond itself is regularly cleaned. But here are found fish, ducks, geese and even say, were black swans, which in Moscow remained only in the zoo. Around are the track, benches, swings and carousels for children. There is also artificial sand island in the center of the pond with decorative lighting.
    The best place to spend a day outdoors in Moscow is hard to find.

    My family and I literally dropped through a manhole at Ekaterinsky Square at Olimpiskiy Prospekt. We spent about 2 1/2 hours walking about 6 kilometers underground!

    Everybody loved it. The only minus is that the guide should have known more about the history. It was cool to see everything underground but the history would have made it perfect.

    We heartily recommend it
