All 12 willow trees have been saved, though earlier there were some tree risk concerns with Bishkek citizens arguing against tree removal. The complex has also got statues of horses, national ornaments, new benches, and some more new elements to be described during the opening ceremony.

The fountain complex with willow trees is one of the oldest sights of Bishkek built in Soviet times.
