The three-kilometer-long Liepāja Jurmala Park is 50 hectares wide. The park was made at the end of the 19th century to gorge the area of the future resort, as well as for purely practical reasons - to limit the blowing of sand into the city.
The park has been a popular place to relax since ancient times. The park has walking trails, children's active recreation area, summer cafes, various attractions, as well as football fields, basketball court, tennis courts.
Around 140 local and foreign species of woody plants can be seen in the park, as well as small architectural forms and fountains, thus achieving the merging of natural areas with buildings. In the eastern part of Jūrmala Park, along Dzintaru and Liepu streets, you can see the construction of luxurious villas formed at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.
At the end of Peldu Street, near the concert garden "Pūt, vējiņi!", there is an environmental object "Ghost Tree". Here you can sit on benches in the shape of a guitar fingerboard and play the songs of the popular group "Līvi" at the touch of a button.
Nearby is the Bathing Authority, built in 1902 by the former chief architect of the city, Paul Max Berci, which is awaiting its rebirth. A Swan Pond was established opposite the Swimming Authority. On the romantic island in the middle of the pond you can walk up the footbridge and feel the atmosphere of the early 20th century.
A pedestrian and bicycle path winds through the entire park to see the large park and enjoy the leisure opportunities provided.
In summer, Jurmala Park vibrates from events, concerts and fun attractions. From the 1st June to 1st September, every Sunday at 12 PM in the children's active recreation area, at the end of Jūrmalas Street, an entertainment event for children is offered - performances by puppet theater or circus studio participants.
