Lake Būšnieku has become a wonderful destination for active recreation enthusiasts, whose special natural beauty can now be enjoyed not only by swimmers and boaters, but also by cyclists, joggers and walkers. . The construction of the new 660-metre section of footpaths and cycling paths along Lake Būšnieku from the boat base to the existing cycling path is currently underway, thus covering the full length of the path along Lake Būšnieku through the forest. Until now, it was necessary to walk along the side of Staldzenes Street to get around Lake Būšnieku, but the construction of this section of the path will allow pedestrians and cyclists to safely and leisurely enjoy nature and the lakeshore. This summer, the total length of Ventspils’ cycling and pedestrian path network will stretch for over 70 kilometres across the entire territory of Ventspils.

The event is organized within the framework of the EU project “Measures for local public health promotion and disease prevention in Ventspils”! The aim of the project is to promote a change in public health habits by improving the availability of health promotion and disease prevention services to the population. Project activities include promotion and popularization of physical activities, healthy nutrition, mental health in society.

We invite participants to participate!
