Skaryszewski Park is one of the larges parks in Warsaw. It’s a listed historic park but it was designed and laid out in a more modern fashion as it dates back to the beginning of the XX century.
You’ll find everything you’d expect from a great park: picturesque alleys, several ponds of different sizes, water cascade and a grotto, rose garden and several flower beds. On top of that there are several sculptures spread out through the alleys and lawns.
You can practice many different sports here including archery, horse riding, canoeing in the lake and of course jogging. The lake is located in the northern part of the park and is a perfect place for fans of large open spaces. I especially like taking a stroll on its northern bank and while I’m enjoying the views I also enjoy the occasional smell of fresh chocolate from the neighbouring Wedel factory.
There’s a cake shop and two restaurants located directly in the park and if that’s not enough you can always dine at the adjacent green district of Saska Kępa.
