There was even an idea to turn it into a garden city.
However, there was no greenery at that time in Novosibirskvery much: only a few gardens and groves - Trukhanovsky, Freedom, Starokladishchenskaya, Sosnovka and the Alhambra. But behind Yeltsovo district there was an excellent boron, which in 1930 it was decided to turn it into a recreation place for the townspeople. So there was Zaeltsovsky park. Initially, it was supposed to build one-day holiday cottages, a water stadium, an exhibition center, etc. Was even announced a competition for the planning of the territory.
The opening of the park took place in June 1932, and after three decades, two really grandiose projects were launched here - the children's railway and the zoo.</ p>>
