The Chrasť Forest Park is located between the suburbs of Vlčince and Solinky. It is a popular rest zone in the town. The park provides a choice of different sporting activities (running, cross–country skiing, cycling, nordic walking). Children can enjoy jungle gyms, a big castle and other attractions.
For children, there are prepared climbing frames and other attractions. There is a smaller restaurant in the area, too. The Rope Park Preles in operation is situated behind the children´s playground.
The Chapel of our Lady of Sorrows was built short time after the war in memory of the inhabitants of Žilina, who died in the First World War. Except for the comfortable walking trails from the suburbs of Vlčince and Solinky, there is also available a stop of the city public transport: Žilinská univerzita (University of Žilina). This area was declared as suburban recreation area in 1981.
