Overview

The Origin of Open Gardens At the beginning the idea was to create a modern and environmentally friendly yet functional space that would serve as a good example as to how others - businesses, schools, government agencies and the general public, could follow. This idea came into being in the fall of 2012. Built in the heart of the second largest city in the Czech Republic, the Open Gardens has been functioning as a textbook of environmentally friendly architecture, sustainable agriculture and modern environmental protection. Climate change poses a fundamental threat to people in the Amazon rainforest, India, sub-Saharan Africa or in Europe. Unprecedented floods, droughts and unpredictable weather changes threaten the lives of millions of people around the globe. The Open Gardens is a living example of suitable adaptation measures to climate change which can be adopted in a highly urbanized areas. Open Gardens = Education and Fun! Open Gardens consists of two parts: a unique environmental education facility, and an office development which provides a home to several Czech NGOs. Open Gardens hosts countless events and activities - seminars, lectures, workshops, family events and educational programs tailored for students. As well, visitors can enjoy guided tours of the passive buildings or rent a place for a private family party. The emphasis of the whole garden design is put on adventure exploration of ecological coherences and the laws of nature focusing mainly to alternative energy sources and physical phenomena, energy savings, utilization of renewable sources of energy and the use of vegetation elements in their natural way.

Fine place in fine weather, a lot of fun with "nature sources". Only mistake - there is no pub. But near is a nice restaurant "Zahrada" ( Garden).

Little bit hidden, but really amazing place. Quiet, enviromental and open. There are some games to play, some handles to move. Bar with coffee and snacks is also really nice

It is a nice place to stop with kids and spend half of the day. Your kids and even you can learn there a lot. Sometimes it can be an issue to find a parking spot somewhere near by.

I found this place by accident. I was shocked to find such a beautiful place that no one was ever talking about. There are many lovely types of plants and it is very peaceful. Great for a summer night stroll. Dwane
