Changes await Pushkin Park as well. There is an already approved plan for the park’s reconstruction, developed by the Kyiv Parks Project and Kyivmiskbud-BMU (Construction and Installation Dept.) #1 Ltd.
We analyzed the project and noticed its weak points. Infrastructure is located inside the quiet zone, where it is not necessary. The amphitheater, the skate park, the sports and children’s playgrounds are dispersed throughout the territory and not connected to one another. A significant part of Moldovska street is taken up by a parking lot, while the entrance is planned on the side. The existing plan is chaotic and does not solve the problems of this area. It does not account for connections beyond the park and develops the park separately from the rest of the neighborhood.
The skate park and the basketball court cause noise pollution inside the park. Our recommendation is to conserve the quiet nature area and to move the activities closer to the street, creating an urban park in place of the buffer zone between the street and Pushkin Park.
