Gorky Park was inaugurated in 1928 and is one of Moscow’s most important public spaces – a national icon for Russians and one of the world’s most famous parks.
Historic buildings make up a large part of Gorky Park’s attraction and Moscow Park Authority has already invested heavily to restore several. The plans for the park will re-establish the visual relationship with these important landmarks.
The park’s boundary will also be transformed with major improvements to all entrances, and six new points of access. The path network will be reorganised to improve the capacity and distribution of visitors and a new circuit route will connect the seven distinct park landscapes and the nine activity areas, creating a single integrated park.
