Along with large Moscow gardens and parks, the city also has less well-known places for recreation, attracting visitors with its beauty, tranquility, silence, and ecological pureness. One of such Moscow sights is the Garden of the Future or Leonovsky Park.

History

It is known that the history of the park starts from the XVIII century, since the founding of the Leonovo estate. It was created as an ordinary garden. The most famous owner of the estate was Vasily Khovansky, who decided to create the park at this place.

Duke Khovansky   invested  in the landscaping of the garden: he decided to create wonderful ponds, build extraordinary greenhouses, systematically replenish the collection of the park's plants with rare species of trees and shrubs brought to him from Siberia. However, in 1825, a  merchant Kozhevnikov became  the owner of the estate and almost completely destroyed the park, and built a cloth factory there.



Park Today

Unfortunately, the estate has not survived. However, an old lime avenue remained there with a three-hundred-year-old oak tree, as well as a decorative pond   and the Church of the Deposition of the Robe. The sights of the park and its pacifying serenity   attract crowds of ecotourism lovers, those who love solitude and silence.

After reconstruction in 2007, the park started its new life: new paths and lanes were created, and information stands were installed.

The old linden alley is a great place for hiking. It is especially cozy and comfortable to walk here or just sit on a bench during the flowering of trees, when everything around  is filled with an incomparable aroma.

Walking through the "Garden of the Future", it is impossible not to notice the oak, which is surrounded by columns and a chain. This tree is one of the oldest oaks in the whole city. It is believed that its age is at least 300 years, that is why the Leonovsky oak is included in the program of protection of overgrown trees – “Patriarch Oaks”.



The “Garden of the Future” has a number of objects that are worth visiting: the Leonov Pond, the Yauza River, a bridge and a flower garden.

Today, many young married couples visit the  Leonovsky Park  to take pictures and walk along the “Newlyweds” alley. For parents and their children on the territory of the Garden there is an alley called “Newborns”.

Clean, comfortable and calm, the "Garden of the Future" is perfect for walking, romantic dates, a pleasant pastime with an interesting book or just a friendly conversation.
