HISTORY

  • In 1859, on the right bank of the Cherry River, the estate of a surgeon with the world name Mykola Pirogov was laid.
  • In 1960–1990, the active development and settlement of the Vyshenka neighborhood began, which naturally required the creation of favorable conditions for comfortable rest for adults and children.
  • The park was established in 1972, the central alley - in 1981.
  • In 2014-2015, considerable efforts were made to carry out a major reconstruction of the park area.

In 1859, on the right bank of the Vyshnia river, a homestead of Nikolai Pirogov, the internationally acclaimed surgeon, was built. He had been living and working here for 20 years. The subsequent history of the picturesque locality is connected with this very event.

The housing development and settlement of Vyshenka microdistrict started in 1960-1990, and it obviously required creating favorable conditions for comfortable rest of children and adults.

In 1972 the park was laid out and in 1981 – its central alley. But the green zone with the area of 90 ha had been inefficiently used for years, that is why, a social project, focused on preserving and renovating the park, started in 2013.

In 2014 – 2015 a lot of efforts were made in order to make a major modernization of the park area: alleys are equipped and illuminated, benches are fixed and the original tree – the tree of happiness - is planted here, etc.

But modern times and new demands require moving ahead without limiting only by these measures. So nowadays new modern concepts are being considered, aimed at integration of the park area to the unified city infrastructure. For example, up-to-date children’s playgrounds are planned (including the ones with soft covering), tennis courts, skating-rinks, skiing tracks, bathing area facilities, renovation of the existing sports grounds and equipping the new ones, construction of two big concert stages, sufficient number of parking lots, opening cozy catering establishments, etc. There are some ideas as to the Center for Birds Lovers, a greenhouse, the Stone Garden, etc.
