Hydropark (Ukrainian: Гідропарк) is a landscape-recreational park (waterpark) on the Dnieper River in Kiev, Ukraine.

It was created as an entertainment complex with mainly water activities: beaches, boating, water attractions. It is located on Venetian (Ukrainian: Венеціанський) and Dolobetsk (Ukrainian: Долобецький) islands; the Venetian Bridge connects these islands. Venetian island is connected with the rest of Kiev by two bridges: the Metro Bridge to the right-bank city and the Rusanivka bridge to the left-bank city. The Hidropark station of Kiev Metro is located on Venetian island.

Current activities available: number of beaches (including one for children and one for nudes), boat and catamarans rental, ping-pong and tennis, paintball and football, water attractions, restaurants, casino and Sun-City Slavutych disco club (right on the beach), open-air gym (Soviet era heritage) and riverboat excursions.


This entrance to the Metro station is in a little used portion of the park, however, it was open when I visited there last summer.
