Park Southern Cultures in Adler - photo and how to get there

I went to South Culture Park right after Olympic Parkthere is not far. A wonderful place to be in nature and a little rest from the city rush. If I moved to live in Sochi, then I settled somewhere in the area, an ideal location: a park with trees, an uncrowded beach, Olympic facilities (there you can ride a bicycle and roller skates), the road to Krasnaya Polyana. Okay, I'll tell you about the park itself.

Park Southern Cultures

Impressions

This park is part of Sochi Arboretum. At the sight of the inhabitant, there is much lessstrange plants, so I would regard it simply as a good park. Moreover, very few plates with the names of plants, and the price allows you to come here often, as in a normal park. The territory occupies 11 hectares, you can walk around them slowly in an hour, or even less, if you do not walk in circles. Only two levels, upper and lower, I came from the top (it is small) and thought that this is the whole park, but it turned out that the main part is exactly the bottom. Only now, work is going on there, so part of the tracks is not comfortable for baby carriages because of the still undressed gravel, there are open wells, workers are walking, not everywhere you can pass. In October 2015, I was told that they had to finish by the new year. The park promises to be even prettier than it is now, look at the photo.

Recently I always try to visitArboretums, in my opinion - this is the best city attraction. I like to walk along the paths of the park and look at the plants that are not quite familiar to me. However, it is not necessary to expect anything special, especially if you are indifferent to nature.

Historical reference

Park "Southern Culture" is located in Adler,near the confluence of the river Mzymta in the Black Sea. At the beginning of the twentieth century, here was the estate of General Drachevsky, for whom landscape architect Regel created a project of a beautiful landscape park with a regular partner in the depth, ponds, stairs, straight as an arrow alleys and a network of paths. The regular and landscape parts of the park, located at different heights relative to sea level, are separated by a system of ponds. Coniferous and deciduous trees, shrubs, bamboos, palms and other exotic tree species grow in different zones of the park. The park also has alleys of Himalayan cedar, fir, eucalyptus. On the pond of the park there are islands connected by bridges.

After the revolution, the estate was nationalized. In 1920, the park entered the Random farm, and a few years later it was given the name "Southern Cultures". In the 1930s, Professor Artsybashev brought plants from various eastern countries to replenish the collection of decorative exotics of the park: Japanese cherry, toed maples, camellias, rhododendrons. In the 1950s, a eucalyptus alley appeared in the park. Later, the park was engaged in little, he fell into neglect, some trees died. Twice the park suffered from tornadoes. Now the park occupies about 11 hectares of land. In November 2008, its reconstruction began. Right now, restoration work is underway in the park, after which the park will become much more comfortable and more attractive for walking.
