Now the lakeside has lampposts, new paths, and benches, on the beach there is a special equipped place with dressing boxes where children can swim, also children’s play and sports grounds have been built. “For many years the lakeside has been the favourite recreation spot for the residents of the neighbourhood, where they have come with their families. However, it was not equipped with leisure facilities for children”, said the deputy of Vinnytsia City Council Alla Vlasiuk, “Now the lakeside has changed and become a comfortable recreation place for the city dwellers.

I’m sure about that”.
