Parks & Gardens

Kępa Potocka Park

Located in: Żoliborz, ulica Gwiaździsta
The park was built in the 1960's, on an island separated from the Łacha Potocka area via a canal. The planners and creators of this unique park were Karol Kozłowski and Elżbieta Jankowska. The central elements of the park – the canal, specially-built promenades and bicycle paths, as well as a children's playground – all attract numerous visitors over the summer months, including cyclists, joggers and families with small children. Lots of open-air picnics, concerts and galas are organized in the park.

Moczydło Park

Located in: Wola, ulica Górczewska
This park, which is also called Moczydłowska Hill (Górka Moczydłowska), emerged at the turning point of the 1960's and 70's. It stands on 37 hectares, and was formerly a waste dump; today, it is home to a large field which is maintained by students of a local school, as well as local inhabitants and the staff of a nearby plant. There are two ponds, and the water levels are carefully regulated using a water pump. The park is popular walking place for locals, and cyclists are attracted to the bicycle paths. But it is in the winter that the park – most specifically, its hill – truly comes to life, as it is besieged by winter sports enthusiasts looking to slide and ski. Within the grounds there is the Olimpia Sports Club, and the Moczydło recreation centre is at the other side of ulica Górczewska. In the summer, it's possible to enjoy one of three swimming pools in the sports complex, as well as volleyball courts, and in the winter, there is a skating rink.

Gen. Józef Sowiński Park (Park im. gen. Józefa Sowińskiego)

Located in: Wola, ulica Elekcyjna
Built in the 1930's, as requested by the President of Warsaw, Stefan Starzyński, to support the Friends of Wola initiative. This was the first park in the Wola district, which was a working-class district. Set on the grounds of the Sowiński Fort, the park occupies an area of about 8 hectares and has a monument dedicated to General Józef Sowiński, who strenuously defended Wola in 1831. With an amphitheater, the park also offers numerous cultural performances including summer concerts, family picnics and evening open-air cinemas.
