Park Dąbrowskiego

  ul. Półwiejska 42 ,   Old Town         more than a year ago
Located right next to the Stary Browar Shopping Centre, Park Dąbrowskiego - named after Polish general and Kościuszko Uprising veteran Jan Henryk Dąsbrowski - used to house two cemeteries and three manors before WWII. One of these, the Mycielski Manor, was only dismantled in the 1970s to make room for a dual carriageway, a project which never came to fruition. Back in 2003 the area was the subject of controversy when the city sold undervalued plots of land to the owners of the Stary Browar complex, ostensibly to expand the park, but with the real purpose of building a new wing of the shopping centre; this move deprived the city treasury of 6-7 million złoty. Today the park contains a small pond and little else of interest, but a refurbishment might take place in the not-too-distant future.
