Historic Site
The oldest public garden in town, Vermanes Park features large grassy areas, fountains, and playgrounds. When it opened in 1817, the site featured exotic trees and a restaurant. Today the 5 hectare (12 acre) park is home to new cafes and restaurants in a verdant setting where locals gather to play chess and enjoy a bit of nature. You can tour the park by kayak along the small river that flows by. A number of free events occur here during the year.

  • Good location in the Centre of Riga, to relax. There is a fountain, playground, podium for speeches. Typically on weekends during summer. In the Park you can buy ice cream, tea, a glass of beer. At the corner of streets and Tērbatas Iela network bistro "Lido". Where you can have a tasty and not expensive pokushal' (compared with other establishments in the area), as well as drink brand beer.

  • You go around in Riga's Center, you avoid not a visit in this lovely green oasis in the midst of historic buildings, embassies and businesses. It can clearly be recommended to sit on a bench and enjoy the inhabitants and their many different activities, as well as enjoy calm in spite of the fact that you actually are in Riga's city centre.

  • Who goes down for example by the freedom monument on the city channel, automatically comes in this park. A wonderful part of the world. After one 5-7 hours cobblestones, it is here to run a boon on unpaved roads, to sit on one of the benches in the Sun. Beautiful flower beds. A green oasis.
