Juodpelkis in Lithuanian means Black Swamp, and it says something about the suburbial character of the destination. However, the city’s authorities decided that one extra football gridiron and a park would liven up the place. Tight budget was a reason to use as many naturally existing elements as possible. The result is a gridiron with 1500 places for spectators with nearby areas designated for use of other sports that are connected with pedestrian walkways orientated around artificial ponds. A stroller would find different areas around the walkway designed for kids, the youth, seniors and sportsmen, it is ideal for jogging or a slow weekend walk with the family. The mounds – once a result of surplus dirt of pond digging – now serve as natural amphitheaters with a view to the water, where additional scenes designed on floating pontoons should appear in the future.
