Information about Oak Park in Bishkek

Bishkek is a small but green city.

There are over 20 parks, apart from the reserves located within the city limits. Amidst this entire shady splendor there stands out Oak Park - the central and the oldest park in Bishkek with more than a century-old history.

Oak Park is almost of the same age as the city itself. The first oak trees in the future park in the area of 2,5 ha were planted as far back as 1890 by Agricultural School students, directed by botanist A. Fetisov, who came to Pishpek (Bishkek old name) from Russia.

The oaks have been growing over many decades: under their thick foliage. Bishkek citizens and its guests take rest in summer, while their spreading branches are home to red nimble squirrels jumping on them. In winter, the Park alleys are covered with thick snow, and in autumn – swept with variegated deciduous leaves.

In 2010, Oak Park was renamed to Park named after Chingiz Aytmatov, however Bishkek residents still continue to call it Oak Park.
