“Nice place to rest under the shade”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Lots of shade under the trees during a hot summer.
Not far there is St Volodimir church and he natural history museum.
Some attraction for the kids in the park.
Just nearby you can see the blood red walls of Kiev university.

“go for the statue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

Notable mainly because it is the site of the principal monument in Kiev to the great Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko. Go on the anniversary of his birth, death or burial and you will find the base of the statue covered in flowers.

“A park in the middle of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

All park inside cities are welcome in my opinion. This is a small park which is very clean and neat. Some fresh flowers were laying at the bottom of Shevchenko's statue. All in all, a nice park for some pictures with Ukraine's most famous writer.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013

There are some lovely plants and if you don't mind plenty of dogs everywhere the walk is fine, but I wouldn't say the park stands out to other places in the world and it's also not Kiev's best park..

“Centrally located " brown-bag your lunch and let's seat outside" place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2013

Pros: Central location, nice green place. A children's playground, lots of benches, O'Panas Ukrainian restaurant right in the middle. A nice "brown-bag your lunch and let's seat outside" place. Some 200 m away from the Premier Palace (5 star hotel) and 400 m away from Khreschatik st. (the main city’s thoroughfare and tourist attraction) and Bessarabsky market (main fresh fruit/vegetable, caviar, etc. place) in Kyiv city center. Right in front of the Red Building of National Taras Shevchenko University and Taras Shevchenko Monument - prominent 19 century Ukrainian poet and the "spiritual father of the nation".
Cons: Security - Taras Shevchenko Monument attracts most of political meetings/demonstrations/official events and is a starting point or – more often - a "final destination" for any political rallies in town.
Useful tip: chances are that the most of announced political/security related events will take place the Park, read news about any upcoming events there.
