Yoshkar-Ola Young Communist League committee put forward the idea to turn the area into park. In 1968, the park got its official name: “Park named after the Young Communist League 50-th anniversary”, but now the public knows it as Tarkhanovo Park or Tarkhanovsky Park.
For the last 40 years, the park landscape and natural ecosystem of the designed area developed without any control. At present, the park territory is a soccer field for people to play and a residual green zone. The competition participants should think over landscape solutions for the whole area of the park.
