SPORTS AND RECREATION
Skanste is a place of excitement and adventure.
Here a number of sports infrastructure buildings of national significance are located, including Arena Riga, which is the venue for practically all important hockey and basketball games, as well as concerts and shows, and the Olympic Center with its sports arena and swimming pool. The bicycle paths and wide sidewalks are part of what makes the neighborhood an environment friendly to cyclists and runners pursuing a healthy lifestyle, maintaining their athletic form or training for a competition. Incidentally, the route of the annual Riga marathon also includes Skanstes Street!
