There are floodland meadows on the island behind Jelgava Palace: more than 70 wild horses are grazing there. These meadows are listed as a Natura 2000 site, a part of the European specially protected nature territory, due to the diversity of rare bird and plant species.

The area is suitable for peaceful walks and studies of the nature, taking along a guidebook in botany or having a guided tour to find out about more about the horses, plants and other valuable examples of nature.

A wooden viewing tower with a well-equipped picnic place in Jelgava, Palace Island, was formed in the summer of 2018. It is intended for observation of the wild horses, birds, two rivers and city panorama in the floodland meadows of the river Lielupe, which is a protected nature territory.

Viewing tower reaches the height of 19.2 metres or six floors; wooden stairs lead to the top observation platform. The first level of the tower is accessible also to the persons with reduced mobility.

A 3.2 km long Health Trail starts at the foot of the tower and leads towards the northern direction of the Palace Island; it is suitable for walks, Nordic walking and biking. Health Trail is closed during the nesting time of birds from April 1 to June 30, and at that time wild horses and birds can be observed only from the viewing tower.

If you would like to have a guided excursion of the Palace Island, it should be booked beforehand by calling +371 20264343.
