Geocache Description:

[ENG] Cache is white wide bottle with pen, pencil, logbok and stuff to trade
[LV] Kešs ir balta plata pudele ar logbuku, rakstamo un mainamiem

For a long time, there were no recreational area in this part of the city, so in 1930ies local folk wrote a petition to the council of Riga. A place was freed from old disused artillery warehouses - hence the name Artilerijas street. So Ziedondarzs was founded.

Tiny at that time park held "Big zoological circus of Colorado" event, but townsfolk kept expanding the park, making it three times larger, until its current size. They say that the name was given by the head gardener.

Alexander Chak, who liked the park very much, was devoted a monument built in 1981.

The owners of newly built "Ziedondarza majas" had promised to rebuild small pavillion, where there were bicycles for rent and refreshments and ice cream.

Ilgu laiku taja pilsetas puse, kur tagad ir Ziedondarzs, nebija neviena parka. Pagajuša gadsimta 30 gados vietejie uzrakstija vestuli Rigas parvalde ar lugumu ierikot darzu. 1935. gada te atrada vietu vecu artilerijas noliktavu vieta - kuri savulaik deva nosaukumu blakus esošai Artilerijas ielai.

Maza parka 30to gadu beigas apstajas "Kolorado lielais zoologiskais cirks", tacu pilsetas valde neapstajas un parku palielinaja. Piecu gadu laika parks kluva trisreiz lielaks, savu nosaukumu tas guvis pec galvena darzkopa uzvarda.

Par godu lielam apkaimju cienitajam Aleksandram Cakam 1981. gada Lucija Žurgina un Olgerts Ostenbergs parka uzstadija pieminekli.

Jaunbuvetas Ziedondarza maju masivs, kaut ari bloke piekluvi no centra puses, apsola mums restauret mazo paviljonu, kur tika ireti divriteni un pardots saldejums
