The rest area by the Daugava was improved by installing benches and a changing cabin. Stairs with railings were installed for easier access to the river bank. The coastal area was cleaned, sand was poured, grass was sown. An information stand was set up.


About the implementation of the project, Agita Vismane-Bitmane, head of the Association of Residents of Riga Dārziņi, says:

"With this project, we wanted to create a place where the residents of Dārziņi can relax. Dārziņi is located in a very beautiful place near the Daugava, but until now there were no places to rest by the water, and the waterfront was unkempt and overgrown. Since the neighborhood is stretched along the river, we planned four places so that they would be as accessible as possible to all residents of the neighborhood."
