June 1 2011

Recreation in the city. Environmental pathways. 16685.jpeg Residents of cities regularly complain about the lack of fresh air. A weekend in the nice days the crowds go away beyond the big city. But you can enjoy nature and in Moscow itself - in several forest parks of the capital appeared the so-called ecological trails, equipped for walking on the latest European standards - with wooden decks along the damp places and ladders, where the road goes uphill.

On the trails also have information boards, introducing the flora and fauna of the park. This is especially interesting to children. The park has a cozy gazebo for relaxation and observation tower - again with a bird's eye view you can cast a glance Sokolin whole natural complex.

Not a bad nature trail in the Silver Bor - a serene weekend of visits to seven thousand people. Backyards Silver Bora has long been turned into a marvelous place for a family holiday, where a tiny patch of combining at least five different natural systems. Here hundreds of nesting birds of different species and even cages equipped with vultures, falcons and owls, water rats, storks, cranes and herons. And yet - uses unique technology, the so-called "alternative energy" - a powerful wind turbine and solar panels. Of them work fine, fit into the landscape lights.

Natural trails, which are the size of places were commensurate with this expensive, and therefore spoil the park, landscapers, and lay a turf and transformed into lawns. Trail, ringed good 10 acres of wildlife, has successfully passed the winter, and today at least clean and tidy and beautiful than a year ago - for all should all guard!

Total length of the route in 1237 meters begins at the reed marshes before - much trash and abandoned. "Wetlands" - so beautifully dubbed the initial segment, and a large information board explained why they need the wood.

In general, the route has been traced in such a way as to combine both areas of untouched "wild" nature, but also man-made, modified by man, scenery. Following the wetlands - an artificial hill above the lake and its gazebo. And then - the dam, popular among fishermen. Then - again, wild forest, and in the middle of it - a small artificial pond at the site of an old quarry, inhabited frogs and tritons are accustomed to people and posing for cameras in front of vultures, cranes, and nutria.

The trail is a Loopback route, along which are located not only aviaries, ponds and pavilions, but also the so-called "Bird Town" with feeders for wild birds, small houses for the ducks. We made efforts to create conditions close to natural for rare birds and animals, many of which are included in Moscow's Red Book - many do not even believe that they can live in the capital, but nevertheless it is a fact. And on special benches set along the route, you can still get detailed information about each of them.

Walking on the environmental route at any time - even early in the morning, though deep the evening. Moreover, in contrast to the Botanical Garden entrance fees from tourists do not take money - breathe clean air in deeply, and with the completely free.

In addition to the Silver Bora in Moscow today has three such trails - on the Sparrow Hills, the Valley are similar in Kurkino, complex reserve Petrovsko-Razumovsky "Kuzminskii park.

p style = "text-align: justify;"> Kuzminskii Park - one of the largest "green islands" of Moscow, an area of ​​more than a thousand hectares. Through the whole territory of the park is a river Goledyanka that already in the XVIII century was created by a cascade of ponds. Now there are four: the Upper and Lower Kuzminskaya, Shibaevsky and a snake. The total area of ​​ponds - 30 acres.

The territory of the park includes two wonderful manor - Blakhernae - Kuzminki (270 hectares) and Lublin (41.1 ha). Preservation planning architectural and park ensemble Kuzminki ranks third after the Peterhof and Pavlovsk. Kuzminskii park is located in the southeast of the capital, starting near the metro station "Volga". It should be parallel to the Volgograd prospectus along farmstead ponds between the Lublin district, and Kuzminki Vykhino, and then expands into a dense forest and reached the Moscow Ring Road, Novoryazanskoye highway and the village of Belaya Dacha.
