The Circular Park (Armenian: Օղակաձեւ Զբոսայգի); also known as the Youth Park, is a public park in the Kentron district of the Armenian capital Yerevan. It starts with the Cathedral of Saint Gregory at the south on Tigran Mets street, and ends up with the Poplavok lake at the north near Mashtots Avenue. The park lies along Khanjyan, Yervand Kochar, Alex Manoogian, Moskovian and Isahakyan streets, forming a half-circular shaped park around the eastern part of downtown Yerevan.[1] The park has an approximate length of 2500 metres and an average width of 120 metres.

  • Other decorative monuments in the park include: the monument of Friendship between Carrara and Yerevan, the Rebirth monument, the Waiting monument and the monument dedicated to Revived Armenia.
