In the 18th century a garden was located here which used to be in one of the suburbs of Yerevan, in Kozern and was called Kozern garden. The garden go new look in the Soviet period. In 1949 it was named after Pushkin. There used to be a number of carousels in the garden, benches were placed in the alleys. In 1970 the garden was caked Barekamutyan and in 1995 it was named Lovers’ park. In the recent years the park was uncared and badly arranged. It was improved and reconstructed by the initiative of Albert Poghosyan. In 1995, following the independence of the Republic of Armenia, by the decision of the presidency of Yerevan City Council’s civil representatives, the park was renamed Lovers' Park, based on the fact that the park had been a favorite rendezvous for many couples, during the second half of the 20th century.
In 2005, by the initiative of benefactor Albert Boghossian, the Boghossian Foundation assumed the renovation of the park, within the frames of Boghossian Gardens project. Following a year of research, French designer architect Pierre Rambach presented the sketches of the new Lovers' Park project in 2006 and received the approval of the Yerevan City Council. Pierre Rambach has visited Armenia several times to explore Armenian landscapes and find the best solutions to enable the combination of rigorous Japanese landscaping principles with the spirit of Armenia.
After being entirely renovated between 2005 and 2008, the Lovers' Park of Yerevan was opened in November 2008. The park has no steps in order to enable an easy access of wheelchairs to all parts. It has a small café with many outdoor seats. The park is home to a small central amphitheatre with a capacity of 215 seats and a stage surface of 100 m².
In 2010, the statue of prominent Armenian poet Gevorg Emin -designed by sculptor Ashot Aramyan- was erected in the park.
The Marshal Baghramyan underground station stands at the northwestern corner of the Lover's Park since 1981.
