(EN) Pavlovsk Park is one of the largest parks in Russia. Its total area is around 600 hectares.

"Forming a single architectural and artistic whole with the Palace, the park is closely associated with the names of Charles Cameron, Vincenzo Brenna, Andrey Voronikhin, Carlo Rossi and Pietro Gonzaga, the designers, builders and decorators of this remarkable edifice. In the course of fifty years they shaped all the main park areas, creating unrivalled specimens of garden design" - wrote Anatoli Michailovich Kuchumov in his book Pavlovsk Palace andPark.

The name of the area comes from the twelve avenues radiating from a central rand point which were cut by cross paths to form a star pattern. The beauty of the Great Star area, which retained the appearance of a tract of natural woodland, was enhanced by irregularly shaped ponds.

(RU) Павловский парк - один из крупнейших пейзажных парков в России. Его площадь - около 600 гектаров.

"Павловский парк, еще более, чем дворец, - произведение созданное в результате сотворчества нескольких ярких индивидуальностей, которые последовательно развивали общую идею. В течение полувека, начиная с 1780 г., сменяющие друг друга или трудившиеся одновременно Ч. Камерон, А.-Ф.-Г. Виолье, В. Бренна, А. Воронихин, К. Росси, П.Гонзага сформировали парк. Они с исключительным мастерством сочетали особенности регулярного и пейзажного стилей в самых разнообразных преломлениях, органически слив их с местным ландшафтом и тем самым придав всему созданному совершенно оригинальный облик" - пишут Д.А.Кючаринац и А.Г.Раскин в книге "Пригороды Ленинграда" (Л.: "Исскуство", 1985, стр.266)

Большая звезда - обширная лесная часть парка, в которой широкие прямые дороги, проложенные по проекту Ч. Камерона, образуют форму звезды. Рядом расположены два Круглозальных пруда с низкими ровными берегами.
