#3 of 10 in Parks in Vilnius
Vingis Park is the largest park in Vilnius, Lithuania. Located in a curve of the Neris River, it covers 162 hectares (400 acres). A pedestrian bridge connects the park with Žvėrynas. It is used as a venue for various events, especially concerts and sports competitions. It contains a small botanical garden of Vilnius University, stadium, and an amphitheater.

The park's history dates back several centuries. In 1965, the park was renovated and adopted to the needs of mass events, such as concerts or political rallies. The amphitheater was built using the design of the modified Estonian Song Festival Grounds in Tallinn. Several major rallies and demonstrations were held there during the course of the Lithuanian independence movement of the late 1980s; a rally on August 23, 1988 drew 250,000 people.
