Viesturdarzs garden (then - Keizardarzs - Garden of Emperor) was set up in 1721 after the decree of the Emperor of Russia Peter I. It was arranged in Gustavsala island (now - Petersala, mainland) and was the first public garden in Riga.
In the beautiful garden, closer to present-day Eksporta Street there was built summer palace of Peter I - light Barocco style building. In front of it there was a basin with fountains. Later this building served as a summer residence of governor general and finally was dismantled in 1770.
