Gorky!

June 25, 2013

After all of our wanderings around, we ended up at Gorky park a few minutes before Annie needed to leave to go to her private lesson. I had never been to Gorky but she has been a bunch of times (lucky girl she lives in the city, unlike me) so we wandered around for a few minutes before she left and I continued to wander around and take pics. The place is huge and totally not what I had expected. There is so much to DO there! Definitely a good place for kids/teens.

I don’t think I saw the entire park but I did see places to play ping pong and volleyball, places to skateboard (huge skate park), a lake where you could rent kayaks and paddle boats, a small strip of sand for a beach (oddly enough it was not next to the lake, it was by itself), lots of cafes, places to rent rollerblades and bikes, tons of bean bags and inflatable pillows to hang out on, a huge Soviet test shuttle that you can go inside, and an outdoor concert area. The place was packed with people!
