Kosciuszko Park, Katowice
(4.4/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Just a few tram stops from the city center. A walk there is worth it to enjoy the colours of the leaves in Autumn. We visited from outside in the yard the wooden church built in the 16. century and ha...  more »
  • Small park in the city center. Nice for a short walk. There is a small church and parachute tower in the center of the park. 
  • The Park is rather small. Stroll around is 3 km. in the Park the old wooden church, parachute Tower and old toboggan run in winter, besieged by children with sleigh. Ideal for walking around running around or in-line skaters because multiple paths is perfect asphalt. Are lawns where you can let go of the dog. Very well maintained. Note on parking on ul. Often break into cars and polocja can not resolve so difficult for them the problem. Better to stand a bit further and NOTHING in the Middle do not leave on the view.
