Yauza Park

On the banks of the Yauza and its tributary, the Chermyanka River, seven sites with a total area of ​​178.5 hectares were landscaped in 2016‒2021. These are territories along Lazorevoy, Chukotsky and Yurlovsky passages, Zapovednaya Street, Mussorgsky Street and in the Botanical Garden.

In 2022, work is planned on two northern sections – along Severodvinskaya Street and from Shirokaya to Yeniseiskaya Street.

City parks and landmarks in residential areas

Since 2011, 886 parks with a total area of ​​about 19.5 thousand hectares have been put in order and brought to a new qualitative level in the capital. According to the Muscovites themselves, these territories have turned into fundamentally new modern facilities. All the possibilities for a comfortable stay appeared within walking distance from residential buildings. In summer, these are bike paths, sports grounds and a workout, and in winter – ski slopes, skating rinks and slides for skiing.

Last year, the park of the December uprising in the Presnensky district and two sections of the Yauza park, as well as 118 iconic objects with a total area of ​​951.1 hectares, were landscaped.

Water features and landscaping

From 2011 to 2021, 89 water bodies were improved in the capital, 30 of them in 2021. Plans for 2022 include the improvement of 17 city ponds.

More than 10 million trees and shrubs have been planted in Moscow since 2011. 600 thousand of them appeared last year. More than 2.3 thousand large-sized trees, such as linden, maple, mountain ash, apple and bird cherry, were planted on the specific areas of the city.

In 2022, new green spaces will appear on the streets, in parks, in courtyards and in natural areas.

Specially protected natural areas

Over the past two years, by decision of the Moscow Government, 35 new specially protected natural areas have been established. Now there are 145 of them, and this year they plan to continue work on their creation.


Environmental monitoring shows that over the past ten years, the concentration of major pollutants in the Moscow air has decreased by 1.3–1.6 times. Carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide near highways decreased by 1.8–2.5 times, the concentration of sulfur dioxide decreased by 1.3 times (near highways – twice).

The content of oil products and metals in the Moskva River at the exit from the city center became twice less. And the average concentration of oil products in the soil (the main indicator of the impact of vehicles on soil) decreased by 2.2 times.

The environmental situation was affected by the improvement in the characteristics of road transport and motor fuel, the modernization of the Moscow Oil Refinery and other industrial facilities. In 2021, in terms of air quality, Moscow entered the top 30 of the world ranking, ahead of Paris, Vienna, Berlin and other cities.

Over the past year, Moscow ecologists held 14.7 thousand educational events, intellectual competitions and competitions on ecology. They were held mainly in a remote format, and about 700 thousand people became their participants.

Work continued on the creation of a unified environmental monitoring system. In 2021, at the expense of the Moscow budget, 15 automatic air pollution monitoring stations were installed in the Moscow region. The new stations make it possible to track emissions from large industrial facilities in the Moscow Region, the burning of logging residues, and the occurrence of forest and peat fires that adversely affect the air in the capital region.

Yards and porches

In order to create a high-quality urban environment, planned landscaping, repair and replacement of outdated infrastructure are being carried out in the yards at the suggestion of residents.

Last year, landscaping and current repairs, including the replacement of asphalt, were completed in 4,039 courtyards. 14,737 entrances have also been repaired.

For people with limited mobility, 192 lifting platforms have been installed at the entrances, and in total, since 2011, 1,591 such platforms have been installed.

In 2022, complex and ongoing work is planned to be carried out in another 2,300 courtyards and 12,000 entrances. Including, at the request of residents, 194 lifting platforms will be installed.

Capital repairs of residential buildings

Since 2015, a regional program for the overhaul of multi-apartment residential buildings has been implemented in the capital. Over the past six years, over 11 thousand buildings have been overhauled, more than 39 thousand elevators have been replaced. Last year alone, 2,513 houses were overhauled and 3,005 elevators were replaced.

At the same time, in the houses that form the capital repair fund on the account of the regional operator, there are no elevators left that have served for more than 25 years.

In 2022, it is planned to overhaul 1,743 houses and replace 2,246 elevators.


A program to improve street lighting and develop a light and color environment has been implemented in the city since 2011. During this time, the number of lighting fixtures has almost doubled – from 399,000 to 714,000.

365,000 new outdoor lighting poles were installed, including 55,000 in 2021.

The lighting improvement program will continue this year. It is planned to install another 36,000 lighting poles in courtyards, children’s and sports grounds, on the territories of schools and kindergartens.

Architectural and artistic lighting

The number of buildings with architectural and artistic lighting has almost quadrupled since 2011 — today there are more than 2,200 of them. You can see architectural and artistic illumination on buildings along the main highways, pedestrian routes and embankments of the Moscow River, bridges, transport overpasses and temples are illuminated.
