This is a park in the city near the river. There is a palace in the park which was close for remodeling during the visit. Many local visit there during the weekend. It is close to the another attraction - the metal arc.

Amazingly this park literally in front of my hotel,so visited the very first evening. I love parks in general, adore fountains even more. You can reach People's Friendship Arch just by crossing it. Would recommend visiting even on rainy day.

It was nice to stroll through and chat with friends, but I can't say it left much of an impression. The grass wasn't very well kept, and there wasn't much to see.

Lush park in the center of the city, a place for resting, walking , jogging and of course having a cup of coffee (there is always someone around). There are 2 spots for praying as well. The park is really well taken care of.

Walked from the Arsenal Metro stop to the Marinsky Palace through this park. It's a thin long strip of a park, very nice w/ all the greenery and views over the river from one side. If you are looking just for a park / greenspace though, would imagine one of the Botanical Gardens would be better than this park. To... More

Marinsky park has beautiful views and a lot to do....from zip line to viewing historical land marks. It is very large and there are interesting areas. Autumn is a beautiful tome to visit this park. Of courses, summer is nice too!!

This is a fantastic place! It was wonderful to wander around and look at the statues and fountains. Very peaceful and the bird song was wonderful to just sit and listen to. There is a view over the city from one part. There are street vendors selling coffee, drinks and ice cream. It's about 25 minutes walk from Independence Square... More

Even on a not so sunny day this is a nice place to sit and read or meander through. It has a number of beautiful buildings nearby to see and perfect place to people watch the locals.
