Stadions Arkādija – stadium description
The Arcadia Park may be small, but is one of the most beautiful areas of Riga. Built around the small river Mārupīte. The stadium itself is surrounded by Mārupīte from three sides and part of the riverbed had to be moved to actually fit the stadium. All in all only one small grandstand could be placed along the west side and the stadium is accessed by two bridges (east side sealed off by railroads).
In 2009-2010 the stadium was completely rebuilt. Both the field with running track and the grandstand were nearly built from scratch. Thanks to these works the stadium now offers facilities for media and maintenance (as well as covered seats), while previously the grandstand was landfill-based.
