Kazdanga Park is the biggest park in Latvia (~196ha) and offers wide prospects for stretching the legs. With the new watching platform and wooden boardwalk in place, the two parts of the Park (Valāta Park and Šēfers’ Birch Grove) on both sides of the Kazdanga Mill Lake are now connected, making a total hiking distance of 9km. The route allows interpretation, as there is a number of well-trodden paths in the Park. To help yourself finding the way, see the informative signs and marking on trees (yellow, green and red coloured stripes, marking the different distance routes). There are several resting areas along the way. The route leads through the old manor parks with various foreign tree species and heritage trees, fish ponds, lake, river, coniferous forest. There are lots of hollow trees around. The Valāta Park part is characteristic with it’s hilly terrain and glens. There have been 154 bird species identified on the route. High diversity of nesting birds. During the day time, various bird species can be observed the whole year through. Few stretches of the trail (incl. the wooden boarwalk on the Lake) are adjusted to whellchairs and parents with baby-strollers.

I highly recommend this track because of its interesting and, for Latvia, uncommon relief. i really like big mountain hikes and this was a small glimpse of it. Well marked track with red stripes on threes.
