Park is beautiful, there may not be many attraction,but just walking between old trees already a good one. Entrance is not free,but it was cheap. My favorite part is oak's woods. And as for me the best attraction is underground river, excursion is on Russian/Ukrainian but you can find everything online.
This lovely park would make for a perfect stopping off point on our journey from Odessa to Vinnytsia. Or so we'd thought... A quick picnic turned into a thrilling adventure after we got slightly lost looking for the exit. Barely made it out alive. Be careful!
