From the 1930s until the beginning of the 1990s, it was called the Chelyuskintsev Memorial Park. The total area of the park is 153.4 hectares. It was laid out in 1832 as a forest dacha of Udelny Agricultural College. It became a park in 1875. Udelny Park was included in the structure of educational and experimental forestries of the Forestry Institute (today the Forestry Engineering Academy) after 1917. In 1930, a forest section from the side of Engelsa Avenue was added to the park.
