Nice nice nice. Green, quiet, great. Take a tour with boat from Bastilian Hill, you wont be disappointed. There are many ice cream sellers in canal park, so just take ice cream you like and relax sitting on the bench :)

We where her for the riga half Marathon so a morning run at the kanal was a most. Nice place to run at and also doing a walk. There is a nice Tea house and in the nights the canal have different lights. One way to see the canal can be to hire a kayak see

You can see the city from different point of view taking a boat ride!
Nice rides are avaliable also in Daugava river, where you can go with bigger boats.
Tooks about 1 hour!

Either you go by foot, following the curves of the channel, or enjoy a boat trip, this is a very pleasant experience in Summer.
In Autumn, a walk will take you through several parks, dressed in amber colours.
In Winter, the silver-white snow provides a dramatic contrast with the dark waters or ice.
In Spring, the bridges are a perfect place to watch the change of the seasons.
