Jēkabpils Sports Centre and Forest Park

A skatepark, a stadium, sports facilities, a gym, recreational fishing and underwater hunting in the Radži water reservoir, recreational fishing licences.

The Forest Park was planted in 1966 in order to shield the city from the dust clouds coming from a dolomite quarry. When the quarries occupying 158 ha of the area were flooded in 1987, the city and its vicinity gained free space for recreation facilities. Now the area accommodates a swimming-place, a swing, a wellness trail, volleyball courts, and a campsite. The Forest Park is also the location of the Great Stone of Radži - 3,1m high, 19,5m wide, 220 t of weight – lying on one of the islands in the water reservoir.
