The green areas, boulevards and shady parks are an integral part of Pärnu as a resort town. The Beach Park was established in 1882 and was declared a nature protection zone due to is wide variety of plant species. The park is located right beside the beach and is a popular place for a walk or just to relax.
Since the summer of 2010, the traditional park area has been divided into different areas by theme and usage: main square, art square, party games and peace square. The park area adjacent to the sea has a modern and safe playground for children. A fitness trail passes through the park, and there are plenty of places to have a picnic.
