The reservoirs with a total area of 1.16 hectares will be cleaned of silt deposits, the coastal strip will be restored with the arrangement of gentle slopes, convenient for waterfowl to come ashore, and the ecological component of the reservoir will also be improved. We understand how important the Sviblovo Park as a natural recreation area is for the residents of the district, and we will make every effort to complete the work as soon as possible, ”said the Deputy General Director
State Unitary Enterprise “Mosvodostok” Vladimir Yavorsky.
At the final stage, conditions will be created here for the formation of nesting sites for waterfowl and fish spawning areas. All work is planned to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2021. Mosvodostok also plans to improve the Kapustinsky and Kola ponds.
The azure ponds of the Sviblovo park together with the nearby church and bell tower are the last reminders of the old 17th century estate owned by the Golitsyns, Pleshcheevs and Naryshkins. Nowadays, the historical square, which is part of a large park on the Yauza River, has become a modern recreation site for residents. Near the ponds there are bicycle and walking paths, eco-trails, sun loungers and benches for relaxation, a workout area, a stage for chamber concerts, children’s and sports grounds.
