City Garden

Parks, Alytus

Audio guide


In 1931, The City Garden, famous for its roses, was established in the centre of Alytus. A fountain installed in 1936, where goldfish once swam and lilies bloomed, has survived to this day. The idea was to place the fountain in the centre of the park, so that it would be like the sun, and all the paths stretching from it would be like rays of sunlight. Squirrels humming in the garden make many people smile. It has 55 species of trees and shrubs.

Lovers of all ages used to bring their dates to The City Garden. It usually took place at the fountain. Wooden park benches were often covered with love poems. Many remember getting their feelings broken in the love corner of the City Garden or on the dance floor.
