September 6, 2018 00:26


Park Ostankino is one of the oldest and most popular parks in Moscow, spread over an area of 71 hectares between VDNKh and the Botanical Garden of the RAS in the Ostankino district.

The territory of the park is a refined forest, where a large number of pedestrian alleys and paths are laid and equipped for rest of visitors: Ostankino Alley, Palace Alley, Lime Alley and others. In the landscape park you can find ancient oaks, old limes and maples, birches and other trees.

New excursions to the Ostankino TV Tower

For fans of outdoor activities there is a developed sports infrastructure: bicycle paths, fitness routes, stadium, the largest in Europe  open skate park "Megadrom Ostankino" and equipment rental points. For cultural entertainment there is a stage and a dancing veranda, as well as a stage on the water of the Green Theater of the VDNKh, located on a floating platform directly on the the Park (Garden) pond.

Among the sights of Ostankino Park you will find an elegant belvedere, arranged on a hill near the pond, the memorial-stele "Gate of Victory" in memory of the dead volunteers of the 13th and 6th divisions of the people's militia defending Moscow, and a sculpture park. The sculpture park was created in the western part of the territory (along the Botanical street) in 2004 and includes several sculptures on theatrical themes:   "Jester", "Designer", "Graf" and others.

For children there are several modern  playgrounds, as well as a small belittle. 

Modern Ostankinsky Park will appeal to visitors of any age and preferences: there are excellent conditions for active recreation and sports, but at the same time its territory is large enough to hide from civilization and relax in silence.

Concerts and festivals are held quite often in the park, thanks to which its cultural program also remains on top.

Park "Ostankino" is located in the Ostankino area between VDNH and the Botanical Garden of the Russian Academy of Sciences. You can reach it on foot from the metro stations "VDNKh" of the  Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya line and "Fonvizinskaya" of the Lublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line.
