One of the favorite places of rest of Poltava residents and guests of the city is the Corpus Garden in the heart of Poltava. The current park began its history in the late 40s of the XIX century when the then owner of the land Petrovsky Poltava Cadet Corps handed it over to the provincial authorities of Poltava.
The park is established on the basis of radial-quantitative principles in four sectors with a system of footpaths and a city of rest. The central axis of the park is decorated with garden gardens with clubs. The dominant feature of the park is the monument of "Glory" (1811. Architects M. Amvrosymov, J. Thomas de Tomon, sculptor F. Shchedrin, I. Martos).
Over the centuries, the park has repeatedly changed its name: Corpus Garden, Olexander Park, Mazepa's Grove, October Park. The modern name Corps Garden (park) is connected with memories of the first owners of the park of cadets of the Poltava corps.
In 2019, citizens woven a record 1183-meter wreath-charm around the Corps Park.
