Glimpses of the
festivities in Brest Park
on May 1, 2006
Brest Park is 100 years old!
a nice place to walk about. It features dozens of rare species
of trees. The environment is perfect for recreation.
The Russian soldiers of Libava 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.
Now park visitors can enjoy a big disco club, an
amusement park and 2 lovely ponds that are called here Lakes:
Upper Lake and 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.
A canal connects Upper and Lower Lake. Water is slowly flowing
from Upper Lake to Lower Lake.
The park has undergone an all-out reconstruction before the
centenary’s celebration. 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.
