Park “Recreation and Culture”
Park “Recreation and Culture” or “the lungs” of Plovdiv is one of the favorite places for walks of Plovdiv residents and guests. Apart from recreation and relaxation, the park is also used for active recreation. The possibilities for sports and entertainment are numerous – from cycling and rowing lessons to paintball and yoga.
Passing along the alleys that take you to the canal you will see from all sides well-maintained playgrounds, athletic tracks, signs for the road to the Plovdiv stadium.
Biking, roller skating, and skateboarding are prohibited in some of the alleys of the Rowing Base, they are the only pedestrian. But others will constantly overtake you, or you will be diverted to those sports enthusiasts.
If you walk along the canal, you will soon reach a beautiful bridge built above it and from there you can easily descend to the Maritsa River valley itself. The fish that swim in the canal waters can be seen with the naked eye. Fishing is forbidden, the reason for this is the world fishing championships taking place on the Canal.
The zoo is located in the huge park of the sports complex but is currently closed for reconstruction.
