Established in 2011, The Russian Cultural Gardens has a prominent goal of building the Russian Cultural Garden as a part of the Cultural Gardens of Cleveland in the Rockefeller Park.
The Russian Cultural Garden is situated on the Western side of Martin Luther King Boulevard, North of Saint Clair Ave., South of I-90, right between MLK and Doan Brook. Beautiful stone bridge over the brook defines the Southern border of our park.
Cleveland Cultural Gardens is the unique phenomenon not only in America but also in the world. We celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Cultural Gardens in 2016!
The first cultural garden, a Shakespeare Garden, has begun in 1916. The majority of the gardens were built in the 1920s and 1930s with money and labor from the WPA as well as the local ethnic communities. By 1939, there were 18 gardens.
Today, the Cleveland Cultural Gardens include fountains, decorative ironwork, and over 60 sculptures. The 29 different cultural gardens include British, Chinese, Czech, Estonian, Latvian, Armenian, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Polish, and Slovenian gardens, among others. Among the newest gardens there are the Syrian garden, begun in May of 2011, and Albanian garden, begun in 2012.
Russian Garden, yet under construction, already started cultural tradition - Grand Piano in the Russian Garden. Two wonderful Grand Piano events featured brilliant, world-knows pianists Arseny Tarasevich-Nikolaev and Stanislav Khristenko.
