Valentin Pikul's garden appeared on the map of St. Petersburg in 2014 at the initiative of the All-Russian Fleet Support Movement and veterans of the Solovetsky Jung School. Initially, the name of the writer was planned to name a small park on the corner of 4th Krasnoarmeyskaya and Sovetsky lane, opposite the house where Pikul lived, but the final choice was made in favor of the park at the intersection of Izmailovsky Prospect and 7th Krasnoarmeyskaya Street, which the people called simply "dusty kindergarten ".
The area of Valentin Pikul's garden is about three hectares. On its territory, Petersburgers can see apple trees, pears, ash trees, roses and lilac bushes. There is a playground for children and two areas for quiet relaxation.
In 2020, a memorial sign to Valentin Pikul by sculptor Dmitry Kaminker was unveiled in the garden.
