Park Abaya located within the centre of Shymkent. There's lots of well kept gardens to see and a circus at the end of the park. There's also the Walk of Fame. A lovely park to wander around.

Abay parc welcomes you with Mr. Abay in the entrance. It's a nice green parc with plenty of attractions for grown ups and children. Connected to the parc is the Circus; Cirk. Nice area just to have a walk.
