The Moscow authorities plan to improve the Yauza Park in 2023. On Sunday, February 5, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said in his blog.
The mayor noted that more than 450 thousand citizens have already visited the public space this season. In particular, four artificial ice rinks, seven ski slopes and four cheesecake slides have gained popularity in winter.
However, Sobyanin assured that the Moscow authorities would not stop there and would improve several more sections of the park.
“The plans for 2023 include the improvement of sections of the Yauza Park along Sukhona Street and Olonetsky Proyezd. In addition, we plan to start work in the Rostokinskiy Aqueduct Park and the floodplain of the Chermyanka River along Selskokhozyaistvennaya Street,” he explained.
“The main task is to update the existing infrastructure and add a little variety and comfort,” the Moscow mayor added.
In particular, we are talking about laying cycling routes and jogging paths. In total, the length of paths for cyclists will reach about 20 km, and running routes – about 42 km. Lanterns, coverings of playgrounds and elements of landscape gardening furniture will also be updated: pergolas, benches and trash cans. The work is scheduled to be completed in 2024.
According to the Mayor of Moscow, the sections along Suhonskaya Street and Olonetsky Proyezd are already in good condition, so the scope of work there will be relatively small.
Earlier in the day, Sergei Sobyanin said that the reorganization of the former industrial zone in Bratsevo had ended in Moscow. Several residential buildings were built on a site abandoned back in the 1990s, some of which are already inhabited. There was also a shopping gallery with shops. The city authorities also improved the Golovinsky Canal from the embankment and built a technopark for 1.5 thousand jobs.
