    Nature first

    Moving along we will see the inhabitants’ favourite walking place– the Botanical Garden, which besides its recreational functions, primarily serves for educational purposes. Spread over 60 hectares it popularises various species of trees, shrubs, flowers - now 820, including 460 naturally occurring in the environment. A very spectacular place in the garden is its alpinarium, with a mountain stream, waterfall and a small lake. It presents the alpine flora that is typical for mountain areas, not only Polish, but also throughout Europe, North America and Asia. It includes generic clusters of plants, such as places of flourishing cherry, apple and magnolia trees, and complexes of plants that are thematically related, e.g. Biblical plants and a butterfly garden with plants that attract insects. A section of the garden has a botanical trail for the blind and visually impaired. It enables learning and recognition through direct touch of individual specimens, which also have labels in Braille.

    Another place that educates visitors about an important role of protecting the environment is the Kujawsko-Pomorskie Centre for Ecological Education. The Centre plays a significant role in the shaping of pro-ecological attitudes among the inhabitants of Bydgoszcz. Its actions are implemented through the creation of educational trails, numerous workshops, conferences and film shows.

    Myślęcinek is not just “green lungs” for Bydgoszcz, but a place that hosts picnics, festivals, concerts and competitions e.g. the annual May picnics, Spring Welcome and Farewell events, competitions for the Cup of the Polish Association of Dog Sledding Sports, Polish Championships…, and even IAAF World Cross Country Championships.
