DescriptionSielanka district garden, dating back to the
middle of the 19th century. At that time, the municipal authorities
purchased a vast area as a reserve for the future extension of the city.
In the late 19th century, the project of a city-garden spatial arrangement
started to be created. In 1912, the final project was made by Joseph Herman
Stübben, which became the foundation for the plotting out of Sielanka. The
district green square (now Marian Turwid Square) was located in the centre. The
district was popular among the Bydgoszcz elites. The new look of the square was
created in 2001 and is based on regular shapes of yew and thuya hedges trimmed
into balls and cones. Noteworthy is a magnificent specimen of Japanese weeping
cherry and sour cherry.
