It is the ideal location for swimming, playing, relaxing, celebrating, and having fun. You are welcome to stroll along the paths, which lead to children’s and sports playgrounds, as well as areas for cyclists, skateboarders, and rollerbladers.
To the lake for your favourite activities
A large pier stretches far across the lake from the lake bay, allowing you to observe the secrets of the lake depths up close. Sailing with the boat Pozoj or riding a stand-up paddleboard will take you on an adventure as you explore sunken villages. However, you may prefer to swim because the water is of high quality and calls for a refreshing swim.
Playgrounds for children and adults
Sports enthusiasts will also feel at home in Vista Park. To keep your body and soul moving, there is a tennis court, a beach volleyball court, and even a bowling alley. There is also a playground with a variety of jungle gyms for the little ones, where they can discover mischievous ways to exercise. The surrounding meadow and park areas provide complete relaxation for those seeking nature.
Anancus and mastodont
Anancus and mastodon are five-meter-high painted concrete sculptures that break through the trees to the event space. Their southern sides are warm red and yellow, while the northern sides are cool green and purple. Each surface also has a distinct pattern: one is curly hairy, another has stripes, a third has a strict mesh pattern, and a fourth has randomly scattered lines. The front trumpeter laughs, and the back one astounds everyone: ooOOO!
Remains of a mysterious antiquity
Interesting sculptures of anancus and mastodont remind us that trumpeters lived in the Šaleška Valley 3.6–2.5 million years ago. Huge herbivores resembled elephants today. The fossil remains of trumpeters discovered in Škale in 1964 are housed in the Velenje Museum at Velenje Castle, where you can also see a life-size anancus.
