Today the Feofaniya Park is still under reconstruction (begun in 2004). Firstly, Feofaniya was mentioned in the 15th century.  The park has changed its name three times, the first one was Lazorivschyna, in the 17th century it was changed to Shakhravschyna. And the modern name Feofaniya dates back to the 19th century. During this century the area belonged to the St. Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery. In 1919, Feofaniya was converted to a collective community.
