The park has quite a history – in the 18th century it was part of Mikhail Golystin's estate. Its facade and Belvedere decorative grotto have survived – now there are restaurants and a jazz band inside. For the last several years, the park is being renovated and gets better but still its main visitors are pensioners and moms with kids who live nearby.
Visit the place for the atmosphere – it is the best hidden park in central Moscow and here you can enjoy ice skating without any lines – they have two rinks linked with an ice path. The ice is artificial so it won't depend on capricious winter weather.
