Brest City Park

The park is a nice place to  walk about . It features dozens of rare species of trees. The environment is perfect for recreation.

This serpentine spruce (Picea Abies "Virgata") is a rare species in Belarus

An old alley of the park

The Russian soldiers of Labava Regiment, who were stationed in this part of the city, laid out the park in 1906. Initially it covered 4 ha. Today it covers over 20 ha.

 

The park has undergone an all-out reconstruction before the centenary’s celebration.

 

On October 16,2004 the park was reopened  on completion of the 1st stage of the reconstruction. On that day the weather was nice, a lot of people came to the park. A long brand new track for lovers of skate board and roller skates runs across the park

     

Now park visitors can enjoy a big disco club, a concert stage in the open air, an amusement park and 2 lovely ponds that are called here Lakes: Upper Lake and Lower Lake. A canal connects them. Water is slowly flowing from Upper Lake to Lower Lake. New bridges span the canal banks and link to the island in the centre of Upper Lake. Nice new wrought-iron fences and railings gave a new look to the sites around the lakes.
Two fountains spring high amid the Upper Lake.
 

 

 On May 1, 2006 it has been reopened as it is named after the First of May Holiday. On that day, the weather was nice; many people came to the park. Festivities were a success.

 

Let's take a walk around the lakes.

Upper Lake

       

Bridges of  Upper lake make the embankment look nice

At last the fountain works!

“U Ozera (By the Lake)” Tavern is on the beautiful shore of  Upper lake, trimmed by the weeping willows.

The tables of the tavern are on the shore,  out of doors.
 “U Ozera (By the Lake)” tavern offers European traditional dishes and Belarusian specialties.

A canal connects Upper Lake with Lower lake,
