Almaty's biggest recreational area, at the eastern end of Gogol, is still known as Gorky Park. It has boating lakes, funfair rides, an Aquapark, a rather sad zoo, and several cafés, shashlyk and beer stands. It's busiest on Sunday and holidays. Trolleybus Nos 1 and 12 and bus Nos 65, 94 and 166 run along Gogol to the entrance.
The central park on the south side of the river (reachable by a footbridge from the south end of Zheltoksan) is home to an antiquated funfair and the gleaming modern Akvapark, with a good indoor pool with slides, and outdoor slides and pools open from around May to September.
