“Nice place to have a walk in Astana”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

Well, it is nice to walk in this park because Kazakh put a lot of effort to make it nice. It is a "urban" park, next to new skyscraper and with streets on its borders. It is full of stairs fountains and beautiful flowers, but almost no trees, which are just near the tower (Baiterek). It is very long, in one side it is ending with the Palace of the President (with a beautiful blue roof), and in the other side (3KM?) there is the avveniristic Khan Shatyr, a huge commercial centre shaped like a tent. It is a place to appreciate the modern Kazakhstan. In winter... it is too cold to go around...

“A place to relax”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

A great location for strolling especially summer evenings and weekends. Plenty to see. A pity that a few years ago the railway operated by children was dismantled. Plenty of places to get snacks. On the riverside.

“Great design”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

Nice design of a new city. Symmetry in the main square. To appreciate it is better to go to the top of beiterek.
