A 200-year-old pine-tree growth and bilberry bush (protected biotops) are the greatest treasures of Dzintari forest park which has a total area of 13 hectars. Architecture objects are located throughout the park and are connected with wooden board foot-path raised above the ground. The most important active recreation element is the inline skating track in the middle of the park. The park also accomodates skate-board and street-ball grounds, a children playground, cafes, sports inventory rental, toilets and other buildings. Nature elements served as prototypes of architecture objects.
