Nearly a quarter of the park, however, is made up of bogs, and this is what most of the park’s visitors come to experience. The Kemeri Bog boardwalk offers guests a chance to explore the vast network of wooden boardwalks and nature paths that traverse the park. Visitors can see nature up close and venture into a world seemingly untouched by man.
The Great Kemeri Bog Visitor Center architecture competition is the second in a series run in conjunction with the Latvia Nature Conservation Agency. The participants are invited to submit designs for an entry point to the nature park. The entry point will need to feature an information centre with a small cafe, a terrace available for those camping in the area, a playground for children, as well as a car park and ticket booth.
As the Latvia Nature Conservation Agency has expressed an interest in the construction of the visitor centre, designs will need to be both in keeping with the look and purpose of the national park, while having the potential to become an iconic landmark in its own right.
