There are a couple of honoured specialized skiing schools and clubs for professionals; and each winter, December to March, a number of high-level competitions, marathons and other events take place here, including 30-km and even 60-km marathons.

For many long years aquapark was one of the most anticipated projects in Novosibirsk. Numerous design projects replaced each other; the location was changed many times. Finally all details were settled and coordinated, and a huge construction started several years ago to be finished in 2016. Now Aquaworld (AquaMir) is the largest in the country and one of the ten largest in the world.

The city center is not especially rich in parks, but the outskirts offer wonderful opportunities, besides, they are easily accessible by public transportation.
