In the 16th century, the park was the territory adjacent to rich private estates. In 1807, it became part of the women’s institute and was named after Empress Catherine the Great.
In the 20th century, during the communist times, Naprudnaya river flowing through the park, was put into a pipe and the old Ivan the Warrior’s church was destroyed. The nearby Ekateriniskaya square (today – Suvorov square) was expanded into the park territory and the women’s institute was turned into Central House of Soviet Army. In 1965, the Museum of Soviet Army was built and open air armory exhibition was opened. In 1999, the park was given its initial name. In 2005, landscaping and beautification of the park gave the park its today’s look.
