As for relaxing in the evening, Trnovski pristan is always crowded with people, especially with loud youths, so I prefer to go to Park Gradaščica. It is located in Trnovo next to the Gradaščica stream, one of the affluents of river Ljubljanica.
I like it, because contrary to Tivoli, it is smaller and less crowded. Being near the river also makes it less warm than other parks. I come here to read or do some tai chi. It is also a nice spot for frisbee, and lonely dog walkers. In winter it becomes a sledding area for children and playground for snowmen.
In Park Gradaščica a new self-sustainable house was built, called Cell. It is a project of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and various business partners to research the possibility of living self sustainably. If you’re interested in design and projects, you can arrange your visit via the contact on the web page.
