While in Bydgoszcz, it’s worth taking a breath and relaxing, taking advantage of the attractions and space of the Myślęcinek Forest Park of Culture and Recreation. It is the biggest municipal park in Poland, occupying 830 hectares.
It is situated only 5 km from the city centre. The park offers a host of attractions for visitors of all ages. During the summer season, we recommend a visit to the funfair, the Lost World (Dinosaur Park) and Macroworld (park with huge insects).
Great fun for youngsters is a rope park with a zip-line and skatepark. Adults will surely enjoy the beautiful Botanical Garden located in the Alpinarium. There is also the Zoological Garden. In addition to bears, wolves and badgers, there are animals from all over the world, including llama, lemur, and monkey. Water sports enthusiasts can take advantage of a lift in the Wakepark.
Myślęcinek is also a perfect place to organize a picnic on the beach on one of the local ponds, which offer barbecue sites.
One of the winter attractions is a ski slope with a lift. When: The Forest Park of Culture and Recreation is open all year round; however, some of its attractions are available depending on the season. Where: Myślęcinek is located a few kilometres away from the city centre. The park can be accessed by car (parking near the tram terminus or at the Polish Fauna Garden).
