Russian Cultural Garden is joining the international family of the Cleveland Cultural Gardens.
Svetlana Stolyarova, Founder and Principal Broker of the Local-n-Global Realty along with Boris Vinogradsky, MD and Sergio Lebid, EVP, Co-Founder at NanoSpire, Inc. has taken the initiative of creating the Russian Cultural Gardens, a non-profit organization that will facilitate the project for the historical Russian Cultural Garden (RCG) located in the most beautiful part of the Rockefeller Park on the Mater Luther King Drive.
Russian culture is an inseparable part of the Cleveland cultural melting pot. The goal pursued in the park creation is to recognize the immense contribution to the cultural legacy of America and the world by Russian writers, scientists, musicians, artists and other cultural honoraries. In order to preserve the humanitarian and peaceful spirit of the Cleveland Cultural Gardens, the RCG Board decided to exclude any political, military and religious connotation from the park design and park related activity.
The idea of establishing a Russian Cultural garden has been brewing in the community for many years. Now, this cultural gap is finally being bridged! The selected land (0.7 acre) has received the approval of the Cleveland Cultural Garden Federation's Board and of the City of Cleveland, construction of phase 1A has been completed and the RCG leaders are now working on the fundraising for the future garden development.
The Russian Cultural Garden was dedicated on September 8, 2018. Permanent sign installed and flag is flying.
Our Garden is located at

Estimated cost of the full project is about $1,000,000.00. It translates into just $25 to be donated by 40,000 people who like Russian language, Russian culture and Russian heritage.
Cost of Phase 1A was $72,000.00.
Cost of manufacturing a granite pedestal and installation of the Gagarin's statue is $16,000.00.
