Yalta, Seaside Park: history of creation
After the end of the Second World War, the restoration of the beautiful Yaltaand its green plantations became the most important direction of work of many leading bodies of the country. In the newspapers, reports on the restoration of parks and parks in the Crimea appeared more often. The main burden fell on the shoulders of plant workers on the greening of the city - it was necessary to decorate the all-Union resort as soon as possible.
For this, the Yalta landscaping trust in late 1946year has received 1 200 000 rubles. This allowed the construction of a new park on the site of the massif near the beach of Zheltyshevsky in the city restoration plan. The need for a general city park in Yalta was spoken before the war. The decision to build it was taken by local authorities in February 1947. It was planned that the official opening of the facility will take place on May 1, 1947, so the residents of the city - students and schoolchildren, workers and engineers - actively worked on preparatory works.
The layout of the park
The architectural design of the object determinedterracing device. It was planned to install a fountain on the upper terrace, to equip the shadow areas in different parts of the park. The project provided for the installation of the pavilion "Soyuzpechat" and kiosks with refreshing beverages. At that time the Seaside Park (Yalta) started from the Oreanda Hotel, from the Livadia Bridge, and not from the obelisk.
The present embankment in 1950 was the very first promenade of the park. All the tracks were sanded during construction, asphalt was not used.
The first sculpture appeared in the park in 1950. It was "Girl with a core." It is interesting that the authors did not preserve the history of this composition. The first sculpture was followed by others - "Girl with the ball", "Athlete with a towel", "Children playing".
To the 49th anniversary of the death of AP. Chekhov Seaside Park (Yalta) received a valuable gift. Announced in 1947, the competition to create a monument to the writer was won by sculptor GI Motovilov. The monument was opened in 1953. The solemn event was attended by the sister of Anton Pavlovich Maria Pavlovna, OL Knipper-Chekhov, the artists of the Moscow Art Theater.
The palm avenue that was popular today was laidin 1952. At that time, it consisted of 100 copies of ten-year trachycarpus. In addition to palm trees, more than 3,000 trees were planted - plane trees and cedars, plums and pines, etc. Plants were imported from the nurseries of the Nikitsky Botanical Garden. Old postcards show that during the construction of the obelisk the old trees were kept to the maximum, and the terraces were planted with roses. Already in 1954, more than 8,000 bushes were planted in the park. Preference was given to the varieties of N. Kostetsky's selection Ukrainka, Rodina, French roses Lyons, La France, Mareshal Niel, Belle de Nikita.
Gradually restored after the war andYalta became more beautiful. Seaside park since 1955 becomes not only the main general park, but also the main nursery of "Kurortzelenstroy". Effective work on decorating the territory of the mentioned cultural object allowed the collective of this orchard organization to get the right to become a participant of the All-Union Agricultural Exhibition held in Moscow.
Thirty-four workers became participants in the Exhibition of Economic Achievements. In the early spring of 1955, perennial pines, magnolias, cedars, as well as shredded roses and evergreen bushes were sent to the capital. At the end of the year, most of them were awarded medals of the VDNKh participants.
After finishing the design of the lower section wasopened one more entrance to the park (third) from the side of Livadia. A sculpture of a deer was installed here. Why a deer? There is no answer to this question. Probably, according to the creators, the sculpture was supposed to remind of the Foros park, where similar sculptures met.
In 1974, in the western, lower part of PrimorskyThe park was broken up by a rose garden. Twelve thousand bushes were planted by NI Verevochkina. To ensure that the rosary blossomed continuously from May to December, selected certain varieties of roses - late, middle and early flowering. The following year the garden was blinded by its splendor, but, unfortunately, this triumph was the only one. In winter, more than half of the bushes were stolen, and other flower gardens were planted there.
