Solemn opening of a new recreation park called “Levoberezhniy” took place on May 1 on the left bank of the Don River. The governor of Rostov region Vasiliy Golubev and the Head of Rostov-on-Don Administration Vitaliy Kushnarev participated in the activity.
“Levoberezhniy” park with the area of 18.1 ha was constructed in the period from September 2017 to April 2018 within the federal program on comfort urban environment improvement. Dozens of specialists worked hard daily to create a new park with the picturesque view on the Don River. It shall be noted that the creation of a new recreation area was done within the all-Russia Priority Project “Formation of Comfort Urban Environment”.
In many aspects the park can be called a unique one and single in its type by the place of location and arrangement. The total area of walkways is 75.4 thousands of sq.m. The walking avenue is of city-forming value for the Southern capital. During the days of FIFA World Cup 2018 holding the avenue will play a main role in distributing the people's traffic at stadium entering and exiting. The maximum throughput capacity of the park is 17 thousand people per hour.
The park has the conditions for comfort leisure time for all groups of population. Various sports facilities can be used for such kinds of sports as beach volleyball, football, big tennis and ping-pong, badminton.
“No doubt, a new park will become the center not only for cultural, but also sport life of the Southern capital. I am sure that Levoberezhniy Park will be welcomed by the tourists and spectators’ hearts, who will come to FIFA World Cup in a month and a half. I hope that the new place of interest will become another landmark of Rostov-on-Don,” Vitaliy Kushnarev said.
