Valuable advice for the creation of the stadium was provided by President of Latvian Street Workout Sports Association, Maris Slezins, expecting it to be not only suitable for workouts, but also for competitions. Evaluating different areas for installing street workout facilities during a visiting session of the Development Committee of the Council of Ventspils City, the Chairman of the Council, A. Lembergs proposed to create the stadium by the entrance to the stadium of the Olympic Centre Ventspils, which turned to be a correct choice.

It helps perform various tricks. Location in fact in the centre of the city is good. However, it is too windy in spring, but the sun starts sending light and heat then, - the organizer of street gymnasts at the Higher School of Ventspils, Krisjanis Polans, shares his satisfaction with perfectly equipped workout area.
