The park has an area of more than 15 hectares and is located in the Perovo district in the east of Moscow. It is worth a visit regardless of its remoteness from the center. Its location has a quite remarkable history: in the middle of the 18th century, the Elizavetinsky linden park, in a regular style with pavilions, fountains, and a pond was established on the Perovo estate. It was designed by the famous architect Francesco Rastrelli, who also designed the Grand Peterhof Palace, the Grand Catherine Palace at Tsarskoye Selo, the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg, and many other iconic buildings.
A number of historic paths remain in the park, including the central alley. There are linden, birch, chestnut, maple, and poplar trees in the park. It has oak and ash trees that are over 100 years old, as well as century-old willows. The park has a large historic pond, several children’s playgrounds, sports grounds, gazebos, attractions, a squirrel house, the Little Racoon children’s club, the FERMA skate park, cycling paths, a workout area, sports equipment rental, a cafe, a volleyball court, and two stages, one of which is converted into an open-air cinema in summer. There is free Wi-Fi access.
The park regularly hosts various events: workshops, lectures, concerts by famous musicians, film screenings, theater performances, and lessons in dancing, acting, fitness, skateboarding, and vocals. In the winter, there is a skating rink and a figure skating school.
