Deciduous park in Svetlogorsk (sculpture «Water-carrying Girl»)

Deciduous Park is a small park that is a popular place for walking and recreation and located in the center of Svetlogorsk, between Oktyabrskaya, Kurortnaya and Sadovaya streets.

The leafy park across Kurortnaya Street borders the Central Square of Svetlogorsk and The water tower of Raushen, which is the symbol of the city.

The leafy park is a small green area with paths for walking, benches and gazebos for relaxing.

The center of the park is decorated with a flowerbed and a sculpture "Carrying Water" (German name Wasserträgerin) by Hermann Brachert.

The sculpture was installed in 1944 in the center of the Raushen Kurpark (currently the Svetlogorsk Larch Park).

The sculpture, now included in the list of attractions of Svetlogorsk, was created in Georgenswald (now the village of Otradnoye) in a workshop on the territory of the house where the family of the sculptor Brachert lived from 1933 to 1944.

From 1945 to 2003, the sculpture was located in the park, after which it was moved to the Hermann Brachert House Museum, where it remains to this day. In 2005, in the Larch Park of Svetlogorsk, in place of the original, a copy of the "Water Carrier" was installed, created from artificial marble by sculptors from St. Petersburg (Hermitage) by order of the city administration.

The central entrance to the Leafy Park, located on the side of Oktyabrskaya Street, is decorated with two sculptures of sphinxes.

The park is surrounded by historical buildings, of which one can distinguish:

- a building with a tower built in Raushen in the pre-war years, which now houses the FLK branch of the Military Sanatorium of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and a flower shop. Address: Oktyabrskaya street, house 14;

- the house where Viktor Leonidovich Batrakov, the head of the Svetlogorsk Central Military Sanatorium, lived from 1975 to 1998. Address: Oktyabrskaya street, house 16;

- the organ hall of the Makarov Company, formerly the Maria - Star of the Sea chapel. More about the organ hall in Svetlogorsk...;

- pre-war buildings.
