Kirillovskaya Grove Park

The park, with an area of 11.5 hectares, represents the remains of natural relief and vegetation (deciduous forest) in the upper reaches of Kirillovsky Creek. It is dominated by linden, oak, birch, aspen and elm. The undergrowth here is formed by hazel, warty and European euonymus, hawthorn and others. A relict species, large horsetail, has been preserved in the grass cover. Sometimes there are old oak trees that are about 200 years old. On the territory of the grove there was the Kirillovskoe cemetery (it was created at the end of the 18th century, and after the Kurenevsky tragedy it was closed and subsequently abandoned), the remains of which are scattered throughout the park in the form of the Kachkovsky crypt and several tombstones.
