OSINOVAYA ROSHCHA (Aspen Grove), a former settlement north of Pargolovo at the junction of the Vyborgskoe and Priozerskoe Highways. First records of Osinovaya Roshcha trace back to the late18th century. During the Russo-Swedish War of 1788-90, fortifications guarding the northern roads to Saint Petersburg were constructed in Osinovaya Roshcha. In the late 18th - early 19th centuries, a palace and garden were constructed which included the Osinovaya Roshcha Park, the palace of the Vyazemsky Princes (1828-30, architect V. I. Beretti; in 1991 suffered damage in the fire), and various maintenance facilities. In the second half of the 19th century, Count V. V. Levashov came into possession of the palace and garden. In the 1930s, Osinovaya Roshcha accommodated a military unit and saw the construction of residential housing (enlarged in the 1970s). West of the Vyborgskoe Highway, the area is built up predominantly with apartment buildings. In 2002, the second section of the Central Circular Highway was laid out south of Osinovaya Roshcha.
