Celebrated in countless books, movies, and songs, Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure draws visitors with its cafes, contemporary public art projects, food stands, and sports facilities. Once packed with theme park attractions, the park underwent a major renovation in 2011, losing most of its old-fashioned amusement rides to become an eco-friendly recreational zone. Designed by avant-garde architect Konstantin Melnikov and opened in 1928, the sprawling park now features an open-air theater and free Wi-Fi throughout its 120 hectares (300 acres). Nearly 40,000 visitors come every day to bike, walk, jog, and rollerblade. During the colder months, the park becomes a winter wonderland, its frozen ponds turning into giant skating rinks. Avoid traffic congestion by coming on foot or by public bus.

Really nice park to enjoy outdoor activities. Check online for activities schedule. Over the summer always is something going on. Check for free dance classes, almost every day during summer (Latin music). Also , you can find nice restaurants to grab a bite. Beautiful view by the river.
Great place for an afternoon out. We absolutely loved the vibe of the park, which was made all the more better by the outdoor concert! We found almost all of the restaurants had staff who could communicate in basic English, which made ordering food and drinks a bit easier to navigate as we wanted to order food recommended by locals! The park is absolutely beautiful in the summer, and definitely worth a visit!!
