The sprawling, 78-hectare Chelyuskintsev Park is a hugely popular place for people of all ages to visit during the warmer part of the year. Great for strolling around under the trees or taking a picnic, attractions include an ancient amusement park complete with 28-metre Ferris wheel, a narrow gauge railway run entirely by young people and, next door, the lovely Central Botanical Gardens (see above).

Interestingly, the park is named after the SS Chelyuskin, a Soviet steamship that found itself stranded along the Northern Sea Route in the early 1930s. Trapped in ice and eventually sinking, the pilots who rescued the crew were the first ever to receive the title of Hero of the Soviet Union.
