The garden has excelent location in the city center. It takes place near metro station.There are a lot of beautiful trees and plants in the garden. The best time to visit it is on april when the magnolia blooms. The entrance is free.

Beautiful park, especially in spring and summer. Good place for a picnic and for fresh air. Take your dog for a walk. There is a small play area for young children.
