Stromovka Park

Stromovka, being the largest park in Prague, has a lot to offer. The park itself has perfect flat and wide paths for biking, rollerblading, skateboarding, and running with many grassy fields and ponds ideal for picnics, frisbee, and grilling (it is allowed in designated areas OR there is a place called Grill Park Vystaviště where you can rent a small grill by the hour). The paths lead to Prague Zoo and Troja Chateau, a walkable distance away on the other side of the river. Further bikes paths from Stromovka lead you along the river to places like Divoká Šárka, a nature reserve with some good hiking and outdoor swimming options. There are several food and beer garden options in and around the park, so you can stay there the whole if you so desire. Also, towards the entrance of the park near the tram stop, “Vystaviště Holešovice” you can find the historic exhibition hall Vystaviště, a planetarium, fairgrounds with a fair in full swing in the spring and summer, an indoor swimming pool, and the Tesla Arena with hockey games and concerts.
