New Attractions in Sokolniki: Observatory and Skate Park
Sokolniki Park in Moscow

The capital's Sokolniki Park is developing its infrastructure: observatory, skate park and a playground for people with disabilities will appear there soon.

      A big playground “The Emerald City” with an area of more than 2500 square meters will be opened in July on the territory of Kostrovaya square. This spot is designed specially for people with disabilities.

      Another attraction – a park for extreme entertainment – is being created at the request and with the help of young people of the district.

      Two more places are planned to be created in the spring of 2012: a scientific and technical centre for children and young people, located in the former lecture hall, and a children's club dedicated to space exploration that will occupy the building of the observatory. By that time, a skate park with an area of 2500 square meters will be fully equipped and open its doors behind the House of Children's Art.

      In addition, such sporting surfaces as tennis courts, a basketball court, a swimming pool “Dolphin” and a mini football field will be included in the infrastructure of the park as well.
