    The old park entrance
    4 more images

    The park is limited by Labor Square and Bohdan Khmelnitsky Street, Kirov Street and Liberators Street.
    The park is an old neglected place, although there is a high-end cafe there: Caesar Сafe near the old city fountain and the old staircase with two lions.
    I must say the locals have begun renovating the park and even plan to restore the ruins of the past glory.
    There are a lot of ruins for you to explore, if need be:
    - the old fountain with four lions;
    - the ruins of old pavilions and the old leisure center;
    - the ruins of old fountains.

    Unique Suggestions: Have a local accompany you by all means.
    Have some local cab service numbers in your mobile phone address book just in case and be ready to order a cab by phone using some Russian...
    Take a look at my pictures of those paths in the old city park and tell me if you are ready to explore them by night... I wouldn't take a risk. Therefore I say it is much better to pay a visit there in the daytime...

    Fun Alternatives: Walk in the city park in the daytime and explore its lanes and paths.
    Be guided by your local partners and friends or at least a taxi driver whom you have hired..
    Take a stroll in Labor Square Park located near the War Heroes Obelisk.

    A Stroll in the Old City Park

    If your new friends, tipsy locals, happen to invite you for a stroll in the old city park, make sure they do not leave you alone there!

    "A tipsy and lonely foreigner in the park? Well, that's too much! He should be taught a lesson!"
    That's what local passers-by - especially "rough & tough guys" - might think and hence their actions.
    Do you need to be mugged? It's a rhetoric question, of course.
    Don't forget to take a torch/a flashlight and a mobile phone (to call a cab). Although that would hardly be of any help in case you are quickly mugged.
    There are a lot of dark alleys there...
    I would think twice before taking a walk there alone...
    This Stalin era park was built in 1933 by the young people of Rubizhne (as we were always told).
    The park was neglected after 1991 and completely forgotten by both authorities and residents over the last twenty years...
    I am sorry it is in such a decay now...The locals have recently begun renovating the lanes and paths and restoring old architecture. I keep my finger crossed.

    Unique Suggestions: Have a local accompany you and don't forget a flashlight for a safer walk.
    Have some local cab service numbers in your mobile phone address book just in case and be ready to order a cab by phone using some Russian...

    Fun Alternatives: Walk in the city park in Kirov Street and Labor Square located behind the old movie theater with Victory mosaic.
    The park is located between the old movie theater and Labor Square.
