“Visit in the Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed this park both as a daytime respite from the 46 degree Celsius days and as a cool evening place to hang out with the locals. The fountains and scenery are a welcome reminder of Persian influence in the city.

“Delightful to wander, and see local families out enjoying the park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

The park is a nice peaceful place to wander in central Dushanbe. Many families were also wandering through when I was there. All seemed to be having a delightful time.
There is a nice statue of Rudaki, the poet, and the world's tallest flagpole is nearby (see photos).
The flowers were in full bloom when I visited. They seemed to be well cared for. However, some of the grassed areas needed a bit of trimming. And some tiles needed replacement or repair. Nevertheless, it is well worth a visit if you are in Dushanbe.

“Rudaki Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

A huge park with so many roses in all different colors. Big trees had been planted, imported from holland, which some of them had died already. Poor workmanship on the tile work, most of them were falling off. Walkways were sweeped , even during the night, but weeding needed to be done.
