This is the first project of its kind in Russia. According to the project, all the relief features of the territory will be preserved, where the height difference on the slopes can reach 34 meters, which will provide opportunities for arranging picturesque walking paths and create conditions for various sports. It is planned, in particular, to build several playgrounds, sports grounds including ones equipped for people with disabilities, viewing points, area for educational programs, amphitheater for festivities, skate park, picnic areas and more.

    In January 2016, the public hearings were held on the project in order to assess its impact on the environment (EIA). The project received a positive assessment. Now the positive conclusion was issued by the Environmental Commission of FSNRMS CFA.

    The project documentation has already been sent for examination to the Inspection of State Architectural and Construction Control of Moscow in order to obtain a building permit. Works on reclamation of the landfill in Nekrasovka is planned to be completed in spring 2017, and landscape improvement - in fall of 2017.
