Located in the center of the bustling city, Bastejkalna Park offers greenery as far as the eye can see, set apart by a river with tiny waterfalls and bridges. Take a walk along its flower-lined pathways, rest on one of the benches, or observe swans and ducks in their rituals of courtship and preening. You'll find sculptures and memorial monuments dedicated to fallen fighters in 1991. The bridges at this 150-year-old city garden are filled with padlocks placed there in the name of love--feel free to add your own.

Natural and relaxing. You can take canal boat from this park. The park is located in a prime spot. The freedom monument is just nearby. All other tourist attractions are in 10 mins distance. It's also close to Jacobs barracks and Powder tower. Highly recommended!
Such a beautiful linear park in the heart of the city. I recommend taking the canal boat ride, it is a relaxing way to get another perspective on this beautiful city.
