I visited it in july 2015, and the view is nice. To walk in summer around Iset river is a compulsory visit for every tourist in Yekaterinburg, no matter what season.

Really calming, nice place- really popular among the local teenagers for hangouts and get-togethers to just take a walk along the river.
