Mountain Park named after P. Bazhov was opened in honor of the 25-year anniversary of the plant “Construction-Technique”. In the middle of the park was built a viewing platform of boulders brought from eight quarries Sverdlovsk and Chelyabinsk regions. The viewing platform has a 10-meter man-made waterfall. There, in the mountain park alongside with stone and bronze sculptures, are wooden sculptures, such as a hut on chicken legs, a well, wooden throne and others. Some objects that adorn the park, the plant management bought from private sculptors.
