The park is home to over a million plants that brush up against the open spaces of surrounding streets, squares, and embankments. The botanical variety of the park reflects Russia’s natural diversity, recreating four landscapes: steppe, forests, meadows and northern landscapes.
Plants are painted in gold and purple colors. Mornings become a little frosty and grass is covered with dewdrops. The fruits of apple-trees, sweet briar bushes and rowan trees have ripened. The garden is filled with new sounds – the rustling of leaves under your feet. Everything in nature manifests the approaching autumn.

Old Wives’ Summer
The sky is cloudless again, the air is clear, the sun is warming up – all of which mean that the Old Wives’ Summer has come. Southern Slavs called it Gypsy Summer and German-speaking countries - Old Woman’s Summer. In the life of the peasants, it was the time when the fieldwork ended and women started doing their household chores – weaving, pickling cucumbers, spinning threads and doing needlework.

Autumn Fall of Leaves
The end of September is the time of defoliation. The main decoration of any autumn park is the maple tree. In early autumn, its large patterned leaves cover the ground with yellow crimson carpet.
