According to the architects’ design the main natural and climatic zones of Turkmenistan will be presented in miniature. The playgrounds of the entertaining complex will be surrounded with the reduced copies of the Kopetdag Mountains, the Karakum Desert, the Amudarya and the Karakum River. In that part of the park dozens of sideshows meeting the international standards of safety will be installed. There will be three-dimensional images of the personages of Turkmen fairy-tales and representatives of the vegetable kingdom of Turkmenistan everywhere.

The visitors of the World of Turkmen Fairy-Tales will have a great choice. They will be able to ride various merry-go-rounds and a big dipper, to make a trip along the river or visit a gallery of laser effect. There will be a special playground for small children; the bigger children will be able to visit pavilions with videogames and a covered arcade. The parent will spend time playing billiards, darts, or bowling.

Trees, shrubs and flowers will grow everywhere; there will be benches, arbours, fountains and original lamps along the paths. Cafes, rental agencies, shops and photo studios will also work there. The technical services and administration of the park will occupy a two-storeyed building with the total area of 7,000 square metres.

That district of the city will have changed beyond recognition by the 15th anniversary of independence and it will be a favourite place of rest. Close to the World of Turkmen Fairy-Tales a puppet show will work, an aquatic complex will be opened and the Ashgabat River with a park zone along its banks will stretch to the south of the park.
