The Regular part of the park lies between the Catherine Palace, the Great Pond and the Cascade ponds. It is created according to Rastrelli's design and constructed by the master gardener Ya Rekhlin. It's historic name is the Old Garden. It was originally planted at the beginning of the 18th century in front of the palace of Catherine I. In the 1750's the park was decorated with numerous entertaining pavilions. The landscaping was designed in the second half of the 18th century and is situated beyond the Cameron Gallery.
