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.

  • This park is situated in the city and is so peaceful, beautiful and CLEAN If you want to hire a kayak or a seat on a boat it is a chance to see the city from another perspective 
  • Perfect place for walking and recreation. I guess there will enjoy both kids and adults, and the romantically tuned pairs and for those who travel alone. Amused a huge statue of a monkey in a suit of astronaut)) was there in September and found "toy"-Fountain, which sprays you can manage. Number of installed touch pad, hold the Palm of your hand, if you raise your hand in the water jets are raised, omit, the Jets also are omitted. Fun for all ages))) Especially looks good in the evening, when water is highlighted.

  • I had some rest time here for lunch. It is great to have a peaceful park nearby. Very well maintained. If you need some greenery, it is lovely to walk around or time out from sightseeing.
