Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.

Reconstruction of a unique forest park, which is located between two water objects - the Klyuchi stream and Lake Krivoe - began in 2015 and ended in November of 2016. Objectives to be achieved: 1) Protection and restoration of the Klyuchi stream valley. The workers stabilized about 23 thousand square meters of slopes and re-designed the bed of the Klyuchi stream. New bridge-passage was built over the stream in the grove. After restoration works completion the unpleasant smell from the Klyuchi stream in the forest park was not traced anymore. 2) Allocation of entertainment facilities: large picnic mangal-barbeque zone. 19 arbors were installed along the stream. Swings were mounted for kids between arbors. Sanitation facilities were put nearby as well. 3) Installation of new playgrounds for children. They are designed for children of different ages and different interests. There are sandboxes and swings for toddlers and various sports equipment for tinagers. Comfortable benches installed carefully for parents throughout the gaming area. 4) Gilev's Grove had been and remains a great place for sports. In winter time there is a hockey box and illuminated ski track. In warm season active leisure lovers will enjoy a pleasant cycle path and six playgrounds for sports. People with pleasure ride on rollers, scooters, skateboards, bicycles and even roller skis, run and do Scandinavian walking. 5) For nature lovers the birds watch zone is equipped on the shore of Lake Krivoe. This part of the Grove is rarely crowded. Only birds singing violates silence of the beautiful view of the lake here. 6) Grove is a great place for photo shoots. Especially for the newlyweds, who often come here to capture the happy moments of their lives, an admiring white open-air pavilion not far from the central entrance was installed. 7) After reconstruction, figures of various animals appeared in the Gilev's Grove. The sculptures are very popular among children. 8) Park territory became as comfortable, as safe. On the territory 427 lanterns and more than 200 surveillance cameras were installed. Throughout the entire walking routes, new benches and litter bins were allocated. 9) Tyumen residents who came to the Grove by car, no longer need to worry about parking. New parking place was arranged for 468 cars.
