The central objects of the park are a pool, fountains, stylized lighthouse granite columns 22 meters high

The park is located in the northwestern part of St. Petersburg. Total area is 91 hectares.

The park is set on the shore of the Gulf of Finland in the North-West of the city.  The green area of 91 hectars is separated from the public beach by a granite embankment alongside the seashore. A wide alley guides you from the main entrance to the granite column 22 m high built in the form of a lighthouse. From this place one may admire the panoramic view to the gulf seascape and the anchored passenger cruise liners. The 300th anniversary of the city was marked by planting a number of decorative apple and lime trees. Today the citizens come here to play volleyball, do skating, cycling and kite-surfing (in case of fair wind), there are some children playgrounds and skateparks. The park is a venue for the annual Maslenitsa feast celebration. The biggest indoor waterpark in Russia called Piterland is located next to the park.

1. The park is situated on a raised beach. Some 30 years ago it would be the floor of the Baltic sea.
2. One may distinguish the dome of the Naval Cathedral of Kronstadt – the city on an island that used to be in important fort in the previous times.

Bring your badminton rackets and a frisbee to spend some good time in the open air.
