Historical park to be built on former detention facility's site

Alexander Vysokinsky, the deputy head of the administration of Yekaterinburg, has proposed the creation of a park to honor the Yekaterinburg detention facility No. 1.

The site of the former jail will act as a place for citizens to come with children and friends to walk and see the city's history, Vysokinsky said, European-Asian News Source reports.

The park may include the presence of tanks, which were built in the Urals during the Second World War. The park may also include a statue of Lenin and a history of the country during the 1980s and 1990s.

Vysokinsky said that it is important to tell the children of Yekaterinburg the history of the city they live in.

Yekaterinburg-TV, in partnership with the Ural State Academy of Architecture and Arts, announced a competition to transform the site, which had previously been occupied by a detention facility, according to European-Asian News Source.
