Landscape and Urban Planning

Pae Park extends on 22 hectares of a former limestone quarry which was abandoned in the mid­1960s. The long period of being wild gave the area its peculiar relief and interesting plant and bird life. In the recent years, the area has been tidied and divided into three (Hill, Nightingale, and Family Park); a summer theatre and a pedestrian bridge connecting Family and Hill park have been built, and a fountain has been installed in the pond. The jogging track covered by bark mulch can be used as a ski track in winter. The park is becoming a new attraction centre and recreation area for the inhabitants of Lasnamäe, thus essentially enriching the urban environment of the district.
