Given that the Zhytomyr region among the categories of nature reserves there is no national nature park. This article provides information about the potential territory in which this object will be created. Slovechansko-Ovrutsky ridge, which now has the status of a forest reserve of local significance is currently considered as an area of high nature - protection and aesthetic value. This paper presents the main advantages of creating a NNP, including: development of tourist infrastructure, job creation, attracting tourists and cash flow, but key among them is the possibility of reducing the shadow economy, which manifests itself in illegal mining, reducing land degradation through minimization impact from agricultural work. As a result of the study, the main value of this object was clarified. First of all, it is the preservation of forests, which are part of the Slovenian Forestry, Ovruch Specialized Forestry, Ovruch Forestry and the Slovenian Forestry AIC. Secondly, it is an opportunity for the development of Ovruch, Olevsk, Narodytsia and Slovenska territorial communities. Thus, the creation of a new NNP with an area of 78,132.3 hectares will increase the conservation status of Zhytomyr Polissya and in the future will become the hallmark of the region.
