The yard is fully accessible for disabled people and features a mini football stadium, a giant outdoor chess board, various sports facilities, and children's playgrounds.

Taking into account the interests of the residents, new lighting poles and surveillance cameras were installed in the yard.
The facades and blocks of the buildings were completely repaired, the asphalt and roof covering were renewed, and the electricity system was re-installed.
