The construction of the Highland Park began in 1935 by famous architect Lev Ilyin. During the Soviet times, it was named after Sergey Kirov and his monument was erected in the park. After Azerbaijan re-gaining its independence, the monument was dismantled and the park was renamed as the Highland Park.
