The best place in Moscow
• The best place in Moscow
Finally got around to write a post about Gorky Park. This is a unique place in Moscow. It turns out that there are still people who do not know how the park has changed over the last year, but in vain. Now it is a totally different park. I often cite the example of Gorky Park, a place can change very quickly. That there is no "mentality" and people we do not "trash", that nothing in this life is not necessary in addition to barbecue and beer.
Dramatic changes began to occur in the spring of last year, when the park started reconstruction. During the summer and autumn of 2011 it was dismantled around 100 rides and illegal objects, and in their place have broken 1, 9 hectares of new lawns and flower beds. Last ride was dismantled in November 2011.
About the attractions was a different story. When they began to break down, the people rebelled. "What is now going to the park, if there are no rides?" If you still have not been to this wonderful place, I invite you on a virtual tour. Let's see why now walk in the park without a kebab and attractions.
In this park is remembered by many Muscovites. This picture was taken last spring.
The empty alleys, lots of obscure old rides.
Throughout some stalls and shops, kebab with plastic chairs and beer.
, tremendous changes have taken place during the year:
By the way, I want to see the changes very much. This is perhaps the main disadvantage of the new park. During the weekend here, tens of thousands of people come.
The reconstruction is still ongoing. In different parts of the old restored pavilions and make lawns.
But a similar place with lawn. Shops very much.
In the clearings established hammocks.
Or there are sunbeds.
However, you can lie on the lawn. Grass always excellent. Many come here now with blankets and picnic baskets. Someone fry kebabs himself.
The prepurified Golitsynsky pond produced 400 kg of fish - grass carp and carp, which are "live protection" to the pond.
It is unclear why have not changed the asphalt. As we know, the asphalt should not be on the footpaths. The park needs a good tile.
Prices are too big, but with such prices queue for hours.
We installed 50 tables for table tennis rackets bought kits and portable tennis guns for tennis. It's all free.
Equipped with the biggest sandbox in Moscow. Children love it.
has made a huge skate park.
Or how to refer to all these ramps?
At the weekend long queues everywhere. Better to come during the week.
In the park came dragons.
opened open-air cinema.
is always something happening on stage in different corners of the park. Morning yoga, then dancing or charging.
Benches every 10 meters. Lacks everything.
And here is the beach. Of course, no one climbs to swim in the river, but you can soak up the sun. In addition there are showers with cool water.
Buran, the only thing left of the old park. It chose not to export. But with the bike path trouble. Firstly, they are very few.
Secondly, they are constantly in the mud and puddles. It is unclear why the asphalt is not changed?
And of course in no way thought pedestrian routes. nobody notices bicycle lane. People walk on it. Streams of pedestrians and cyclists should be separated.
But everywhere there veloparkovki.
All the food and drinks made in the same style. In the park there is a very expensive and pretentious restaurants, and the usual fast food. For every taste and budget.
But now all in the same style and looks very organic.
The park really has become very steep. When people ask me where to go to Moscow, I would recommend to go to Gorky Park. It is now an island of civilization. There you can spend the whole day and have fun for the whole family.
For children a lot of sections and classes: someone draws on the lawns, some games with animators plays. For teens - ramp and roller skating, biking and beach volleyball, movie theater. For office plankton - free vayfay and charging laptop, you can work directly in the park. For girls - the beach and cafes. For pensioners remained shady avenues and comfortable benches.
But most importantly - people. Going to the park, all are sweet, kind and polite. Rarely where you will meet in one place so pleasant and nice people. All are smiling to each other and do not litter. If you are someone starts to tell me that in Russia one rednecks and nothing can be done here, send an interlocutor in Gorky Park.
I'd like to also reconstructed the VVC. Now it is a shame to the kebab house, pivasikom, obscure venues and shops.
