Park “Yauza” will become one of the best places for recreation in the north-east of Moscow. From the Moscow Ring Road to the Rostokinsky aqueduct, a single green zone with a length of more than 16 kilometers will be made.
In the spring, it is planned to resume work on the improvement of parks, squares, streets and squares, which was suspended due to the pandemic. About it Sergei Sobyanin wrote in my blog… Among the major projects is the continuation of the improvement of the Yauza Park in the north-east of Moscow.
This year it is planned to put in order two territories in the floodplain of the Chermyanka River, a tributary of the Yauza. The area of the improvement will be 49.1 hectares. The first section runs from Mussorgsky Street to Dezhnev Passage. The banks there are overgrown with grass, it is rather difficult to approach the water. The center of attraction for this part of the park will be a new sports area with a hockey rink, streetball court, tennis courts, a skate park, and exercise equipment. It is also planned to create playgrounds.
“We will reconstruct the Otrada stadium, which does not look very good so far. On the site of an abandoned football field, we will make a new one with heating, so that you can play in winter. An indoor ice complex of light non-capital structures has already been erected on the site of the old hockey rink, ”the Moscow Mayor said.
In addition, an open area for events is being reconstructed. There will be a large stage with a canopy, a room for artists and comfortable benches for spectators. A projection tower will also be installed so that you can watch a movie.
In the course of the improvement, paths and bicycle paths will be put in order, pavilions for cafes and toilets will be installed, trees and shrubs will be planted, flower beds will be laid out. “Along the bank of Chermyanka, a meadow lawn will be sown, and for a convenient approach to the water we will make decks and observation platforms. Titmouses, birdhouses, gogolyats and bird feeders will appear in the park, ”added Sergei Sobyanin.
The second site, which will be landscaped, is located along Yurlovsky passage: from Dezhnev passage to Molodtsova street. The main object there will be an environmental education center – the first interactive platform dedicated to the study of the professions of the future in the field of ecology.
Another highlight of the park will be the ecotrail on stilts. It is planned to lay it on both banks of the Chermyanka River, and in several places to connect it by river crossings. The unusual path will become a short and convenient path between the residential areas of Otradny and Yuzhny Medvedkov. On the eco-trail there will be recreation areas where you can practice yoga and meditation, hold creative evenings.
“We will equip a playground for fans of cycling tricks and sports zones with various exercise equipment – they can also be used by people with disabilities,” said the Mayor of Moscow. “We will put in order the existing playground and additionally create three new play areas where kids and older children can spend time with interest and benefit.”
As a result, residents of Otradny and Yuzhny Medvedkov will receive a high-quality public space by the water. In 2022 and 2023, the improvement of the Yauza River floodplain will continue. In the future, a single green zone with a length of more than 16 kilometers will appear there, from the Moscow Ring Road to the Rostokinsky aqueduct with exits to the Losiny Ostrov park and VDNKh.
From 2016 to 2020 have already been put in order five areas of the future park total area of 135 hectares. They are located along Lazorevy and Chukotsky passages, on the territory of the Botanical Garden and along Zapovednaya Street.
