“Favourite Park”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

I love this park and I walk there every day when I am in Kharkiv. I stay at Chichikov Hotel, so it is just across Sumskaya. The paths between the trees are lovely, there is always something new to discover, there is the statue with the bronze toe to be touched and a wish made. At the back of the park, past the Dolphin place, is the lovely cascade waterfall.

“Centrally located”
Reviewed 5 December 2013 via mobile

This park is centrally located, close to many local attractions. However, comparing to Gorky Park, it is really poorly maintained. There are a few places for food, local zoo, delphinarium, and Schevchenko monument. If you stay close to the city center, I could recommend this place for a short night walk.

“Schevchenco”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

The biggest park in Kharkiv. No special attraction but you can visit some genuine statues there and also join to the youth there in the weekends

Reviewed 15 September 2013

Clean and quite big park, not much attractions in it but it's good if you are just looking for a walk.

“Not spectacular , a little disappointing”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

I was expecting a lot more, don't know why but thought there was going to be more. Found the city somewhat dirty and run down. Everything seemed to be under repair.

Sorry, just wasn't impressed.
