Relax and enjoy the large fountain at First President's Park, a 73 hectare (180 acre) arboretum set against a backdrop of spectacular mountains. Opened in 2013, the park features an elegant turquoise-domed observation deck and a curved colonnade with a marble arch commemorating the country's independence. Meanwhile, an elaborate fountain with light and music shoots water up to 30 m (98 ft). Paved lanes, flower beds, birch and fir trees, and numerous benches create an easy atmosphere for a stroll. Take some water with you as there are no shops in the park. Plan your visit to First President's Park and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Almaty trip planner.

When I came there weather was delightful. Sun was shining, little breathing. This place is very huge and beautiful!! The view on mountains from there are amazing! Small ice rink is too crowded due to the weekends. If you are going to have a rest and breathe fresh air, this park is great place to visit. On the territory several coffee shops, WC and a lot of benches. Highly recommended to see. it's a good place to spend time with family. There are dedicated lanes for bicycles, roller-skates.
One of the must see park once you are in Almaty.The park is big and beautiful. It is easily accessible by any public transport or taxis. The entry point of the park is very beautiful and it is well maintained too. In winter's with snow all over it looks like a heavenly park. Keep this park as one of the to do list of activities once you are in Almaty.
