The city of Astana lies on the banks of the Ishim river. North of the central area lies the city park, a huge green area extending for about 800m x 1000m. The park is nicely laid out and contains a number of interesting structures and buildings. Along the Ishim river there even is a sandy beach. At the southern end there is the Atameken theme park, containing miniaturised replicas of Kazakh buildings and monuments.
