It is a huge park, surrounding the palace of Catherine the Great, with ponds, a small dam and museums to visit. The open air places, though the time of my visit was a hot day, gives you the soft breeze and freshness you need in a hot summer day. Renting row boats is possible at the dam area though I didn't try to rent one as our visit was a mid-day time and sun was burning. Still I am sure early hours or around the sunset time rowing on the pond surrounded by lovely trees will be very nice.
The palace and the museum area is huge and you have to buy tickets for them at the entrance. Otherwise visit to the park and walking around it is totally free. Of course you have to pay for the attractions as well, if you want to join them. There is a small playground/amusement park for children at the entrance and a horse riding complex up to the northern part of the park.
The only problem I can tell with the park is, there is not variety of restaurants which gives you options about food. All I could see was some shashlik and pirozhki. They looked decent enough but the more variety the better I always say...
