The Main Event of the Development Campaign for Alekša Square, Sarkandaugava


The remaining work will be done to transform Alekša Square into a “good location”! We will finally set up the beautiful design objects that have been created by local residents and earned the praise of designers. An OUTDOOR GYM will be built at the red wall, followed by the last finishing touches, levelling the ground, planting grass, flowers and shrubs. Come and join in! We recommend you wear suitable clothes - and a smile!

Project description:

The „Development Campaign for Good Locations” (Labas vietas TALKA) is driven by games that Riga's residents love to play at home, which are used as an inspiration for the creation of environmental objects in the squares and parks in Riga's neighbourhoods. One such location is Alekša Square in Sarkandaugava where local residents will plant seedlings they have grown at home and do other beautification work on the 1st of May. Later on this year, the development of two more „good locations” will commence in Dižozolu Street in Ziepniekkalns and the „Promised Land” (Apsolītā zeme) area in Čiekurkalns. The project is implemented by the “Ideju Māja” association and the Contemporary Architecture Information Centre.
