Summer is all about barefoot running, green grass, barbeques, singing, dancing and performing somersaults… Of course, of course you are right few things are missing in my list – laughing and sunbathing. Anyhow, I know the perfect spot for all these activities.
We have this island in the middle of Daugava called Lucavsala. A year ago it was quite a dodgy place with overgrown tiny gardens, scary bushes and gravel roads. Now we have a fantastic park in one part of the island between Salu and Railways bridges.
With wide lawns for picnics or lazy days in the sun, with a large playground for kids and not only them, with a beach, with beach volleyball courts, with a cable wake park and a cafe. I believe that one can find even more things to do there.
One thing is for sure this park will become one of my favorite spots this summer in Riga.
