Official name in the Soviet period – “Park named after the Young Communist League 50-th anniversary”.

The competition territory amounts to 12.18 hectares.

Yoshkar-Ola Young Communist League committee put forward the idea to turn the area into park. In 1968, the park got its official name: “Park named after the Young Communist League 50-th anniversary”, but now the public knows it as Tarkhanovo Park or Tarkhanovsky Park.
