Lots of outdoor activities for kids from 2 to 12 or more. Parients can enjoy rollerskating of 860 m. track also in the park, climbing into sighseeing tower will give a little adrenaline? But look for good weather.

I live in Jurmala, so Im really pleased that we have such a place to go for: a small walk, because the park isn't big, meeting your friends - there are a lot of wooden benchies to sit, play basketball, see Jurmala above the trees (watchtower), spending time with children.

Dzintari is like a playground in the woods. This is a very well kept place, with a quality play area, a skatepark, good waking and even tiny motor cars for young ones. All surrounded by wonderful birch trees. The kids had a wonderful time: I would definitely go again.
