The Kirov Central Park of Culture and Recreation, the Park of the 300th Anniversary of Petersburg and Sasnovka Park became the most favorite parks of our readers. On the Peterburg2 website, they received 77, 65, and 52 thousand views, respectively. The picturesque Apple Garden received the least attention – it has only 15,000 views.
Murinsky Park is a very well-cultivated place with developed infrastructure. Here you can relax in nature by organizing a picnic, see an exhibition of sculptures in the open air, sit in a cafe or ride a bicycle. You can go for a ride along the picturesque Murinsky stream on tracks and paths, as well as on the rest of the park. There are special paths for cyclists, but the natural landscape is also quite comfortable.
Park of the 300th anniversary of St. Petersburg
The 300th anniversary park is great for cycling. Of course, it has recently become very popular, so there are at least enough pedestrians, skaters and cyclists here. But the territory of the park is large, there is a wide embankment with a wonderful view of the bay, Lakhta Center and Gazprom Arena. You can continue the bike ride by crossing the Yacht Bridge to Krestava Island, where there is even more space.
Victory Sea Park
It is to Primorye Park Peremohi on Kryzhovsky that you can go before or after the trip to the previous park. It is designed both for active recreation and cycling, and for leisurely walks among people or away from them. You can ride on the main avenue, which is wide enough for everyone to be comfortable, or on small paths that will take you to the bay or to the secret corners of the huge park. Here you can also have a snack, ride on attractions and even sunbathe on the embankment near the South Road.
Sosnovka Park is ideal for cycling. It is very large, and there is already enough space for both cyclists and pedestrians. The trails here are quite suitable for adults, many of them pass through the forest. Fresh air and wonderful nature – what is needed for those who are tired of the city bustle. There are several cafes in the park, there is also a stadium, sports fields and even a shooting range.

Park named after S.M. Kirava on the Yalagin island is well suited for cycling holidays. It is equipped with comfortable, level paths that pass picturesque ponds, glades and architectural monuments. If you move, you can come across a protein or other cute animal. Just keep in mind that bicycles are allowed on the territory only on weekdays: on weekends, the entrance is paid and there are a lot of pedestrian visitors.
The private park is recognized as an architectural monument, it has a unique landscape, many coniferous trees were planted in it during the reign of Peter I. This place was created for lovers of peace and slow relaxation. There are many good paths here, and in the lower part of the park you can not be afraid to encounter crowds of people – pedestrians prefer its upper part.
A small park in the Moscow district of St. Petersburg boasts an extensive network of paths with good asphalt. The area here is very picturesque, and there is also a small pond.
Shuvalovsky Park is also very picturesque and peaceful. Its fairways are pleasant to ride even on hot sunny days – shady trees will help you and give you a fresh breeze. There is also quite a hilly terrain here, which may appeal to fans of mountain bikes or stunt bikes. Let’s tell you a secret: there is a high slide, which is incredibly pleasant to go down with a breeze. But, of course, you have to be careful.
Perhaps one of the least known locations in the city – to the delight of connoisseurs. You can go for a bike ride here: there are both asphalt paths and gravel lanes. And for athletes there is a special ring track. Another pleasant bonus: in spring and summer, fruit trees bloom beautifully here.
