Vingis Park is by far the largest park in Vilnius, spanning 400 acres. With a small botanical garden, sports complex, outdoor concert venue, several playgrounds, and plenty of benches to sit on and watch the world go by, visitors will certainly find some active, or inactive, fun. Numerous cycling and running trails weave throughout the park, and cyclists have the option to rent a bike. Though not in the city center, Vingis Park can be reached on foot or via an inexpensive taxi ride.
