The flora of the park is wonderful at any time of the year, because evergreen coniferous plants are the main part of the greenery. The scent of coniferous trees, especially after rain, makes you forget about the crazy tempo of life in a few kilometers in the city. You can rest completely not going too far from the city.
But, of course, autumn is the most colorful season: motley spots of leaves softly lighted by the still warm sun, beautiful reflections of pine trees in the water...
Automobilists can easily find "Silver Pinery": go forward all the way from the center of the city to Zvenigorodskoe highway, then, at the crossing with Narodnogo Opolcheniya Street, turn to the highway-doubler of prospectus of Marshal Zhukov and you will get to the park. You can have problems with parking at the weekends. In this case, you can leave your car in a free space at the beginning of Karamyshevskiy Prospectus. It will take 200 metres to reach the park from the parking place, but you'll have an opportunity to enjoy beautiful views of the river from Horoshevsky bridge.
Coordinates of the parking space: 55.778347, 37.4501663
Also, you can get to the center of the island by public transport: trolleybus №21 from “Polejaevskaya” metro station.
