Summer is all about barefoot running, green grass, barbeques, singing, dancing and performing somersaults… Of course, of course you are right, there are a few things 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 bridge.
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 and concerts for free from time to time. I believe that one can find even more things to do there.
One thing is for sure, this park is still one of my favorite spots in spring and summer seasons in Riga. Let’s not leave winter aside – Lucavsala is great spot for making your snowman or snow castle or have some snowball fights. Enjoy!
