For more than a hundred years, Saint Petersburg residents have wished to see an urban park on Vatny Island. Today, the city has a unique opportunity to make this dream of several generations of Petersburgers come true and create a new, world-class landmark on the Petrograd side. Tuchkov Buyan will become the city's first park with direct river access and will offer new panoramic views of the Peter and Paul Fortress, the Treasury ensemble, the Rostral Columns of Vasilievsky Island, the Admiralty, Saint Petersburg's drawbridges, and the Neva River itself. Thanks to the project, the city's green spaces will be united in a single, unbroken pedestrian route: from the Field of Mars and the Summer Garden via Trinity Square and Alexandrovsky Park to the islands. The embankment between Tuchkov and Treasury Bridges and Academic Likhachev Square will be transformed as well.
