“Beautiful Green Zone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

This is a very pleasant green zone in the middle of the city. The fountain in the picture is only one of two in Kiev - the other is at an outdoor café/restaurant called, appropriately, The Fountain (a great place as well)

“A very sociable park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

As all the other reviewers have said this is a lovely park, beautiful views, lots of benches, very sociable, lots going on, for all ages etc etc, all of which I agree with.
What we enjoyed most about this park was, when it gets very hot (it was 87 degrees when we were in Kiev) this park has plenty of shade. There are beautiful high shady trees which line most of the walkways, so even when it is a hot day, you can walk though this park in the coolness of the shade and enjoy the outdoor space. Perfect!

“In all seasons, I enjoy this park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

This park is so lovely in all kinds of weather. At certain parts of the park you can see some nice city views. You can enter at the funicular or the big rainbow. There are always couples strolling in all sorts of weather and a few benches scattered along the way. It's a nice tranquil spot to walk along without leaving the center of downtown. After you cross the lover's bridge you'll start to see a couple beautiful buildings, one of which is currently under renovation (I went a few days ago). Make sure to stop by the enormous frog statue along the way and rub it's tongue, I think it's supposed to be lucky. I always enjoy taking a walk through this park.

“One of my favourite parks in Kiev”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

As most of residents of Kiev I really like this park. You can come with kids or your special one. It is beautiful in any time of the year. There are a lot of teenagers riding BMX bicycles, skateboarding or rollerblading. There is a Mariinsky Palace close to the park, but is it now being renovated.
