7 (Un)usual Park Activities In Prague

7(un)usual park activities in Prague - GuidiloEven if your budget's tight, you can find ample adventures at a park. Take advantage of your nearest recreational area and plan an outing for the whole family, friends or a significant other - no matter how young or old. Use these suggestions to get your crew off the couch and out into the sun for some healthy, free (or cheap) warm weather fun. The park is open 24 hours – get outside and enjoy Prague´s abundant green spaces!

1) Picknick
Grab a basket and blanket for a lazy, languid feast on a grassy park lawn. You can also load some hearty fare into a backpack and hike to the perfect spot near a waterfall in Petřín park or to a peak with an endless view in Vyšehrad park.
Tip: Try a typical czech tradition – Roast sausage tour by our Local Lucie A.

2) Disc Golf
Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc to hit the target. Trust me, disc golf is so easy to learn, no one is excluded. Many Prague´s parks have golf courses already set up. Most are free to play as often as you like. Check courses in your neighbourhood here.

3) Open air concerts & summer cinemas
During the warmer months there are various open air concerts, seasonal plays and events like Summer Shakespeare Festival or summer cinemas. All of them are much-anticipated annual activities.

4) Yoga
Join the Free Yoga Lesson in Vyšehrad Park. Meeting is every Thursday at 7 pm in front of metro station Vyšehrad in direction of Kongresové centrum. Great for beginners or those who want a more restorative practice. Arrive early, bring a mat, water and good mood.

5) Strollering
This is a special tip for mothers on maternity leave - it can have a form of a power walk with a stroller taking advantage of the principles of Pilates method, dance or in-line skating. Strollering is designated for all mothers after the postpartum period, as well as for fathers. All strollering courses available here

6) Slackline
Slacklining is a dynamic balance sport, which involves walking, balancing, bouncing and even flipping on a stretchy line tensioned between two trees or anchor points. Walking across a slackline is like bouncing across a very thin trampoline. See how good you are at tightrope walking in the Žluté lázně resort

7) Running
Discover the runner in you! Prague´s parks provide some wonderful and varied routes for morning, evening or weekend runs – Stromovka, Ladronka, Prokopské údolí, Kunratice forest or try to run on the Vltava bank.
Tip: Combine a sightseeing tour with a healthy running workout with our Local Radim P.
