Stroll under the canopy of trees at Gorky Central Park, the oldest park in Minsk, dating back to 1800. During Soviet times, the park changed its name from the Governor’s Gardens to the "park of culture and recreation after A.M. Gorky," a famous Soviet writer. Rent a rowboat or paddle on the river which runs through the park. Have a snack at one of several cafeterias on the bank. Attractions include an amusement park, an observatory with a planetarium, and an ice skating rink. A 56 m (184 ft) high Ferris wheel offers a broad view of the city.

Nice and peaceful park in the very heart of Minsk. Consist of two areas -- amusements for kids and adults (quite old and poor, I must admit) and green walking area which is lovely. There's a lot of fast food points here and there, but they are not bright is terms of service and quality.
A very pleasant and melancholic place for walking with children. In summer, there are attractions and a few cafes. Squirrels jump in the trees, many ducks swim in the river.
