City park

The floodplain on the right bank of the Savinja River under Miklavški hrib, formerly called the Savinja meadow, began to change its image after 1856. Ivan Orešnik, the owner of Kapun's court, planted wild chestnuts to create two alleys along the river bank. That is how the promenade was created - the basis of the present city park. A footbridge across the river Savinja takes us from the town center to the park. In the embrace of great trees and carefully landscaped greenery, visitors can enjoy the promenades with the beautiful surroundings or sit on the bench and relax. Modern and fun playgrounds are available for children, while recreational tennis courts and ice rink are also available. The park is a popular starting point for walkers and hikers because the path starts at the nearby Anski vrh and the Miklavški hrib, from where a beautiful view of Celje, old castle, and its surroundings can be seen. The hill above the park covers the city forest, which is charmed with many well-kept walking trails.
