Park "Zaryadie" will be connected with the Moscow River on three levels
Zaryadie will have close ties with the river - physical and ideological. A network of mini-lakes will appear in the park itself, and the promenade and the soaring bridge will allow you to admire the water surface from a height, said Moscow’s chief architect Sergey Kuznetsov.
“We are trying to create strong ties with the river: at the underground level, the park will connect to the embankment via a junction, which will also house a small exposition - objects found during archaeological excavations in Zaryadye. Nearby, along the embankment, at an altitude of up to two meters, a walking promenade will pass through the park. He will allow to admire the Moscow River directly from the park. This relief is connected with the fact that the Kitaygorodskaya wall was not completely disassembled in some places, ”the chief architect explained.
This will give a curious visual effect: due to the fact that the promenade will rise above the embankment, visitors to the park will not see a stream of cars moving along Moskvoretskaya embankment.
“In addition, the project envisages the creation of a network of small lakes with reeds and other near-water plants. In the English version of the concept, the zone is called wetland, which means "wet earth". A comfortable space for walking around the water with interesting lighting will be created. Finally, the third level is the “floating bridge,” Kuznetsov said.

The bridge with the function of a viewing platform and a 70 meter radius will hang over the entire embankment and partly above the river. “The bridge will be the engineering miracle of the park,” said the architect. - Imagine, its weight - 3,650 tons - this is about the weight of cars in a traffic jam almost 20 km long! And it costs only two supports. At first we wanted to make an elevator descending to the embankment, but refused to not create a false sense of additional support. Lifts will be only from the park. We are grateful to Mayor Sergei Sobyanin for supporting this bold engineering solution. ”
Well, of course, the pier, located directly opposite the "floating" bridge. Previously, it was planned to move to 200-300 meters to the side,however, the conditions of navigation in the waters of the Moskva River did not allow this to be done - in this broad place the ships have the opportunity to turn around.
