The 160-metre promenade in front of the old town wall is a playful moat-like place where movement-sensor activated sprinkler fountains are interspersed with benches, lights,ferns and flowerbeds and carousels for children.

The pre-war Arkaadia Garden was a summer garden on Väike-Turu Street, where people went for dancing and entertainment.
