At Beech Avenue go straight 300 meters, cross the Avenue Jacques Duclos across. Be careful: Avenue Jacques Duclos is very popular with cyclists and families with children and dogs.
After crossing move along the narrow walkway, smoothly making a left turn. Run past the benches, crossed by secondary paths. Make a right turn, go to a shopping Mall and after 100 meters turn her to the left at a right angle. Ahead is the intersection with the Main Avenue, where the right in the direction of motion will see the considerable size of the monument in memory of the pilots of the great Patriotic war — while on the site of the Park was an airfield.
Looked and go further straight for about 300 metres, after which turn left in the direction of small fields, opposite MDM kept on forks to the left and traversed across the Avenue Jacques Duclos.
