Moscow Parks: Sadovniki (Gardeners) Park
June 25, 2019 22:42


Address: Park "Gardeners" - Moscow, Andropov Avenue, 58a

Metro station: Kashirskaya

A new park appeared  on the Andropov Avenue in Moscow in 1989. It was called Gardeneres.  Earlier until the XIX century there were orchards here.

The park was laid out in record time: in 4 months all paths were ready, new trees and shrubs were planted, LED lighting was installed, new benches, gazebos, bins, and parking lots for bicycles were constructed. Three playgrounds for children of different ages and sports grounds, including two for volleyball, and one tennis court, a chess club,   a cable car, and a stage for dancing were created there. 

A special joy for the youth was the construction of a modern skate park of almost 3000 m2. It is equipped with everything necessary for a pleasant ride: a pool of concrete with a height difference, a railing for smooth gliding, steps, small inclined surfaces for exercises,   and other modern features. There are pavilions for renting sports equipment and cozy little cafes to relax.

In the center of the Park, there  is a square with a dry fountain, terraces, the main pavilion and the Riga Garden, which was founded in 2005. The observation deck opens a stunning panoramic view of the Kolomenskoye. The navigation system in the Park Gardeners was developed by a special project of Latvian specialists. The system of interposition of paths and tracks copies the plan of the old Riga. All structures have a Baltic character:  there are mounted structures made of steel and wood, arches stylized as grilles, and lighting devices made in the Riga style. All metal architectural forms follow the Baltic motifs.

Riga Garden

In the central part of the park, Riga garden is located.  There are flower gardens with an abundance of wild herbs there, which are associated with the waters of the Baltic Sea. 

Special attention is paid to the question of gardening. A cereal park was erected around the fountain on the terraced areas. On the main alley of the park, different flowers and trees bloom throughout all seasons: daffodils and crocuses, apple trees, rowan trees, red maples, bright and catchy sage spots, and  cute cornflowers.
