Ivan Petrovich Kolokolnikov was a well-known entrepreneur and public figure in Siberia. He received a poor inheritance, but thanks to his energy and resourcefulness he quickly became rich. In 1880, I.P. Kolokolnikov purchased a small settlement located on 50 acres of land, four versts from Tyumen along the Turin Highway.
The merchant used the small settlement as a summer cottage - in addition to the farm, they built a large flowing pond on the Babarynka river, planted alleys of trees, arranged flower beds, built a house for the family to stay during the summer holidays.
To diversify the nature of the park, Ivan Petrovich's sons brought various trees, plants, and stones from all over the world. Now there are more than 400 species of plants preserved in the park, many of which are unique.
After the revolution, the Kolokolnikovs' dacha, like all their real estate properties, was nationalized. In May 1921, the dacha was converted into a holiday home for teenage workers named after A.N. Olovyannikov.
The boarding house was used for recreation by several generations of Tyumen residents, and during the Great Patriotic War there was a hospital No. 3518 for wounded soldiers.
In 1995, the self-supporting enterprise "Resort polyclinic with boarding house named after A. N. Olovyannikov" was liquidated. All the buildings of the former Kolokolnikov dacha burned down during the next decade.
Now a historical object with a rich nature is being reconstructed.
