Kosciuszko Park, Katowice

4.4
The Kosciuszko Park, which has existed since 1925, is one of the most famous and frequented parks in Katowice, Poland. It is situated at the street of the same name.Its foundation dates back to 1888 when a municipal park was founded on the 6 ha area of suburban grove. The present area of the park is 72 ha. Its arrangement is influenced by English gardens-parks, which is emphasized by an alley of roses turned to wild. The park used to belong to the most beautiful places in Katowice, also because of the flower arrangements on the flower-beds and pergolas and classicistic gardens. After dusk the park is lit by stylish street lamps but it is not a safe part of the town in the evening.In the park there are several structures which are worth seeing. There is a commemorative plaque funded for the patron, Tadeusz Kościuszko, by the people of Katowice in 1925. The parachute tower also dates back to that time. It is currently being rebuilt to its height of 40 m; it was erected as a training structure. Not far from it there is a monument commemorating the heroic participation of scouts in the defence of the town against the Nazi invaders in 1939. Two unique structures of wooden building in Upper Silesia, a manorial granary from 1688 (burnt in 1970) and the Church of St. Michael Archangel, a wooden church under the invocation of St. Michael from 1510 moved from Syrynia, were placed in the park. In the park there is also a permanent gallery of plein-air sculpture, collecting works of famous artists of the region: Zygmunt Brachmanski, Augustyn Dyrda, Joachim Krakowczyk, Piotr Latoska, Jacek Sarapata, Andrzej Szczepaniec.

  • Plenty of paths to walk. Some playing ground for children. Nice old church not to be missed. But very little alternatives to eat something - so bring your own food!  more »
  • The Park is very large, yet there I was wandering it whole, but enthused me even his wedge. Well maintained, clean, there are a lot of places where you can sit back and relax.

  • The Kosciuszko Park I drive usually on the way to the Muchowiec. It is a pleasant place, without a whole lot of walking around and cyclists. This park is such a green lung of nearby neighborhoods.
