Moscow beaches: 2011 summer recreation in the capital

Moscow beaches
Beaches in Moscow in 2011

Hot June again forced Moscow authorities to remember about the deficit. This time there is shortage of beaches. Currently the capital of Russia needs equipped beach areas, which could receive about 300.000 people. But today the Russian capital has equipped beaches, which are able to receive only 35.000 visitors. Such figures are provided by the Interfax agency quoting the Moscow vice-mayor Lyudmila Shevtsova.

As of 9 June 2011 in Moscow it is officially allowed to swim in 8 recreation areas:
"Large urban pond" (Zelenograd, Central Ave)
"Meshcherskoye" (Leningrad highway, 39)
"White Lake" (Zaozernaya street, 2-6)
"Silver Wood-2" (Taman street, the beach number 2)
"Silver Wood-3" (4th line of the Horoshevsk Silver wood, beach №3)
"Troparevo" (Troparevskiy pond, Akademika Vinogradova street, 12)
"Black Lake" (Zelenograd, 6th district)
"School Lake" (Zelenograd, 10th district).

For non-compliance of water quality with hygiene standards were closed three beach areas: "Beach Club", "Big Garden Pond" and "Levoberezhnyi". Here will be installed warning signs prohibiting swimming. Another sampling of water for the test is planned for June 20, 2011.

All the above-mentioned Moscow beaches are equipped areas and have special management companies. The authorities till the next season intend to expand the number of beaches by developing "wild" recreation areas. Moscow authorities intend to hold a tender among the management companies that are now operating on the market.

Among the beaches that in the near future can be developed are: beaches along the Zhivopisnaya street, beaches of the Kirov and Stroginsk flood plains, as well as Schelokovsky beach number 1. The government of Moscow already has positive experience of cooperation with private companies. With the help of private capital have already been equipped two beach areas: "Silver Wood-2 "and "Silver Wood-3". The total number of investments is amounted at 20 million rubles.
