  • Great spot for a walk around a large lake 35 minutes from the centre of Riga. Take the number 11 tram to the end of the line. Even with the ice and snow, the scenery was beautiful! 
  • The area is accessible by tram from Riga, and has plenty of play areas for children. The snack bar was still open when we visited and did an excellent cheap kebab. 
  • Great park for families and sports enthusiasts. A great place for running, skating, cycling and other sports. Or just to walk and relax. You can also visit the zoo.
