As for relaxing in the evening, Trnovski pristan is always crowded with people, especially with loud youth, so I prefer going 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-sufficient 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-sufficiently. If you’re interested in design and projects, you can arrange your visit via the contact on the web page.
