Kandava County Council



The goal of the project was to create an infrastructure object – a boat dock and a walking path with a viewing platform, an educational information stand about the ancient river of Abava, benches and waste bins at the bridge of the Abava River – the oldest stone bridge in Latvia, in order to reduce the anthropogenic load and ensure accessibility to the river bank. As part of the project, a footbridge on sleepers, a footbridge on supports and a pontoon have been created, a bench and an information stand have been installed.
