Separated from the public gardens and woods surrounding Lake Rusałka by only a road, Park Sołacki essentially ushers you into this lush green district just northwest of the Old Town. Really, on its own it would be enough - with the Bogdanka River running right through it, and two ponds with charming bridges spanning them, plus lots of ducks and waterfowl, this is perhaps Poznań's most intimate and picturesque park (that weird sculpture at the north end, notwithstanding). With no fence hemming it in you're free to wander the more than 14 hectares it covers and enjoy the peace and quiet anytime you like. Pack a picnic, dine right in the park in the restaurant of the Hotel Meridian, or have an elegant evening in Milano Ristorante just outside the east exit. Get there via tram 9 or 11 from 'Most Teatralny' to 'Sołacz'.
