Rīga park to welcome alpine climbers

In Rīga's Sarkandaugava suburb, the redevelopment of Dauderu Park (formerly Aldara Park) is taking place, during which the park tower or 'artificial castle ruins' is being restored. The tower is intended to be used for mountain climbing training and for views, Rīga City Council (RD) said Thursday.

The walls of the stone tower are restored in such a way that they can be used safely for mountaineering training after completion. The interior of the tower is intended to accommodate an exhibition dedicated to Latvia's mountaineering history, while the top of the tower will form a viewing area.

RD said that a number of other works are also being carried out, such as a rubber-covered children's playground, fences and gates are constructed, and the greening of the park is also carried out.

The park area also has a bunker whose rebuilding has already been completed. In the past, the bunker has only served as a shelter, but it has now been restored to its historical form, RD said.

A stage is set up on the bunker roof, but the park's history informational stands will be placed on its walls.

Similarly, amphitheatre construction has been launched in front of the stage, which will provide a space for organizing various events.

A gym area is also set up in Dauderu Park.

The three rounds of construction will cost around €3.7 million in total. The works are carried out by the company Guliver Construction.
