Batumi Boulevard has more than a century history. Its construction began in 1881. The idea belonged to military governor Smekalov. He asked Prussian Gardener, Resler to build the Seaside Boulevard. Later the planned construction of Batumi Boulevard should be continued by an invited French gardener, Mikhail Dalfons, who is mentioned in historical sources as "the genius of the Batumi coast".
In addition, the French-educated I. Gordesian should be mentioned for contribution to the development of the boulevard. He became a manager of the city park, boulevard and plant nursery in 1917. Until 1933, under his initiative, the city park and boulevard were completely renovated.
In 2009 the area of Batumi Boulevard was significantly enlarged and it was designed by the Spanish architect with modern standards. It is called New Boulevard.
