LNK INDUSTRIES Partnership GP has begun the large-scale construction works in this territory, which later on will be rightly called the first and largest active leisure and sports activities place in Riga, in May last year on commission of the Property Department of the Riga City Council. The total area of improvement works performed by the LNK INDUSTRIES Partnership GP was 56,000 m2. Squares for skateboarding, basketball, football, volleyball and tennis were constructed and equipped, as well as playgrounds for children of different ages and a square for street gymnastics. Now there also will be a skating rink opened in the territory, and it will be possible to use it for skating in summer. The territory is fenced and has paved squares, as well as paths for both pedestrians and skaters.
