    Admiralty park with swing set

    by sennaya Updated Feb 9, 2009

    Hi,
    it was a big swing set in the park between St.Isaac Cathedral and the Peter's I
    monument, by the embankment and Admiralty.
    It is very good to play in the Summer garden too. It is 30 min walk with child from your place by the Hermitage along the Millionnaya street, Mars field and Summer garden entrance from the embankment side.
    Enjoy your walks!

    Winter: Go sliding on ice

    Zooom!  Frozen ponds are in many parks

    When the deep freeze of winter comes the parks have frozen ponds and children of all ages enjoy walking in the park, and sliding on the ice. Some sit on cardboard or a sled. But any pair of warm shoes will do!

    This is Yusupovski Park on Sadovaya Street, one of many local parks.

    Park Maintenance

    He is a picture of some men laying sod in the Summer Gardens. Nice blue bibs, fellas! One thing I noticed when I was in St. Petersburg is that in these big, open parks with lots of grassy areas, the workers do not use lawn mowers. They use little hand-held weed-wackers! A job of trimming the grass that would take maybe an hour with a lawnmower must take an entire day with a weed-wacker and cost three times as much to do! And besides that, the grass wouln't even get trimmed evenly! I just don't get it.

    sax in the park

    Here is a man in a park in St. Petersburg entertaining the crowds with his saxaphone. People are happy to toss perfomers like this a few rubles or kopeks.

    Statue from the Old Sylvia sector of the Pavlovsk park, the Apollo Square. These sculptures are from the 18th century, and are copies of antique originals.
