It is the dominant spot of the palace and park ensemble
In the XVIII century it was used for holidays and festivals. Elagin meadow was turned into a parterre garden planted with flowers. Rossi and Bush completely destroyed a regular layout, replacing it with a huge field with loose, flowing contours. On the north side of the meadow Rossi built housing offices, decorating them as park pavilions, which he placed so that a sense of monumentality increased from building to building in the direction of the palace. Carriage Road was set around the Buttery Meadow in three fathoms.
