A comparative assessment of the ecological and geochemical condition of soils of the city of Ul’yanovsk and its park territories is given. Some physical and chemical indicators of the soil environment (pH, exchange base, humus, sulfates, chlorides, etc.) are determined. Schematic maps of heavy-metal content in soils of the city are made. The main problems of the ecological condition of parks under conditions of urbanization are revealed.
