The park is suitable for both: admirers of active and calm recreation. There are children playgrounds for all age groups, road for roller skating and pedestrian roads, cafes, parking lot and toilets in the park. The park is opened all year round. In winter park is an excellent place for distant skiing on a lighted trail. The access is very convenient; there is a parking place for 200 cars at the park. In 2010 a panoramic tower was opened here. The tower is 33, 5 m high and it reveals unforgettable view of Jurmala. The tower has 12 balconies on different levels so everyone can choose the height.

We took our nearly 4 year old son here and he absolutely loved it. As well as the forested area which is lovely, there are multiple playgrounds suitable for a range of ages. Plenty of seating for the adults and cafés and ice-cream stands a-plenty. Just a short stroll from the Dzintari train station and another short stroll to Jūrmala... More

One must pass through this forest park to reach the viewing tower although the tower was a waste of time. The forest itself is lovely.

As a Central Londoner I am tree deprived So many tall pines ... & many elegant birch trees coming into leaf....beautiful sight Silence & stillness with birdsong of course, I imagine in Summer it will be less peaceful, more crowded but in May it is perfect.

New Forest park is nice place to go with kids, to do extreme BMX cycling(fun box/ramp), to walk or to roller blade(track), to play basketball or to have a look at Jurmala panorama from panorama tower. Strongly recommended to visit.

This is a very good park especially well suited for kids - they have different play grounds for different aged kids, something that I have not seen often even in Western Europe. They have a small velo track separate from the main paths for pedestrians. Highly recommend, especially in summer.

Technically a pure forest next to the sea side. Good for walks and fresh air. There is a view tower and some atractions for children.

Located approx. 200 meters from the main walking street. A must if you want to see Jurmala and beach from the ``sky`` (there is a watch tower where you can climb up free of charge)
