Today it is part of a unified system of botanical gardens in Russia and educational research, cultural and educational division of the academy. Botanical Garden was established to preserve, study and enrichment of the gene pool of plants of the natural and cultural flora, as well as providing educational programs of higher and postgraduate education.

He is registered with the Committee of the State Inspectorate for Protection of Monuments and protected by the state since 1989, as a monument of landscape art in the first half of the nineteenth century with a valuable collection of trees and shrubs.

Since 1995, our Botanical Garden is an environmental object with the direction of the creation of special plant collections for biodiversity conservation and enrichment of flora, as well as implementation of scientific, educational, methodical and educational activities.

In our botanic garden dedicated efforts of many generations of employees with love created the world's richest in terms of North-West collection of plants - more than 1000 species.

Regarding the financing of the Botanical Gardens, then, unfortunately, neither the region (although we are preparing for it professionals), neither region has not identified a single ruble for the maintenance and restoration of our wonderful, unique garden. From the Committee on Urban Environment Park in 1995 was included in the address program for the restoration of ponds, but due to lack of funding the work was stopped. Since 1995, thanks to the city address program building committee of St. Petersburg are working to restore the iron fence. Our park is an open city park and the city should show more attention in that direction.

All of the major concerns of the Botanical garden and park are borne by the Academy. I would like to express my appreciation to the administration of the Academy for the attention and care of the park. It is thanks to rapid response and the response to the problems of the garden we maintain our park and greenhouse. I want to thank all the staff of the Botanical Garden for the tireless caring and selfless work for the conservation of the Botanical Garden.

Although the park is in poor environmental conditions (6 plants, powerful highways, multistory buildings and communications, Metro) and nowadays is in great need of complex, major repairs, yet PARK STAYS ALIVE, operating a unique body, which should help.
