Previously, this place was overgrown with grass wasteland. Only dog owners who were walking with their dogs could be seen here. According to residents of Ust-Kamenogorsk, it was very uncomfortable. And at night, everyone tried to stay away from this park.
But then large-scale reconstruction began on dozens of hectares of land. There were built playgrounds for all major game sports. On weekends, this park is full of the students of the youth sports school. They exercise whole day.
The thing is that the Park is located on the banks of the Irtysh River. The constant wind from the Irtysh blows away the smog and therefore it is more comfortable to exercise.
On the Bank of the Irtysh River, the city beach was completely reconstructed. Now it is equipped with changing booths, comfortable sun beds and umbrellas.
You don't have to be a super athlete to get here. Everyone will find a place to practice yoga or cycling. If you do not like this, you can just, as in childhood, play volleyball or football with the guys.
The Park is located in the area of Vinogradov street, and you can get here by bus number 47 or minibuses: 256, 260, 261.
