Baku Boulevard (Dənizkənarı Milli Park, National Park) is a promenade that runs parallel to Baku’s seafront. It is the oldest park and a valuable monument of garden-park art in Azerbaijan.
The park was awarded medals and diplomas of various degrees and won previous republican and All-Union competitions. The park conflates architectural elements of the East and the West.
Baku Boulevard is the largest boulevard in the Soviet Union in terms of distance. Modern Azerbaijan necessitated increasing the length of the boulevard. The length of Baku Boulevard will reach 14-15 kilometers after the construction of coastal strips in the flag square.
The territory of the Seaside National Park is being expanded to the State Flag Square. In the extended area along the coast, landscaping works, concrete slabs, fastening, and cleaning works are underway.

Baku City Duma decided to build the seaside boulevard in 1909. Famous engineer Mammad Hasan Hajinski, Kurevich, and architect Adolf Eichler contributed to its implementation and development after qualifying a competition.
A green belt between the seashore and the newly built Alexander Street (Neftchilar Avenue) was planned as per the proposal. Initial two years, fertile soil was transported here from abroad, and various rare plant species were brought from Azerbaijan and Europe.
Boulevard developed into a beautiful green and recreation area during the Soviet era. The state carried out reconstruction work on the seaside boulevard in the 1970s due to the expansion of landscaping in Baku.
Some valuable plant species were destroyed due to rising Caspian levels and impact. Non-recreational facilities were built here.
