    Very good place to spend time with family outdoors. A large playground-interesting features-equipment bearing the signs of wear and have already given the owner of the object and minor repairs, but safe. Landscaped green square, where you can arrange a picnic. Place with the audience and the stage. The proximity of the old town with a wealth of different types of cafes and knajpeczek.
