Residents of Khmelnitskyi decide whether they need additional attractions in T. Shevchenko Park.

The park named after Taras Shevchenko is one of the favorite places of recreation for residents of Khmelnytskyi, especially for young people and children. The residents of the city are attracted by the metal figures of Mykola Mazur, as well as fountains and bright flowerbeds. The park is always crowded and you can hear the laughter of children here.

Last year, the renovation of the playground in the park began. Modern children’s attractions had already been established here. Also, modern equipment for children with disabilities was installed – a swing and two roundabouts. There was no such a thing in Khmelnytskyі before.

The playground renovation is almost complete and many children are already enjoying it. Representatives of the Khmelnytskyi City Council wondered if there were enough attractions, whether there was a need for additional paid entertainment for children?
