The Moscow region Urban Council approved the concept of the retail park "Otrada" in the Krasnogorsk district. It includes construction of the largest water park in Russia, according to Deputy Chairman of the Moscow Region Government German Elyanyushkin.

A three-storey complex with a total area of about 180,000 sq. m will be constructed on the territory of 14 hectares. It will house shops and boutiques, cafes and restaurants, as well as a cinema and a fitness center with a swimming pool. The projects’ investment volume will amount to around 5 bln rubles.
