The Skaryszewski Park named after Ignacy Jan Paderewski, is one of the largest parks in Warsaw. This historic park, is listed as a monument since 1973 and is located in Praga Południe district, next to the National Stadium.
This is a very cool and very popular place for relaxation for the whole family. You can spend time here on blissful laziness, using the green lawns where you can safely spread a blanket and picnic here, read a book or just lie back and soak up the sun. If you prefer it more active, you can enjoy a game of badminton, boules in the gravel paths or enjoy a game of tennis on the courts.
Skaryszewski Park is also a great place for runners. There is a lot of shady alleys making running so much more pleasant.
In the park there are a lot of benches. There is also a band shell where seasonal concerts are held, a cafe, a pub, a refreshments point and a playground for kids. Skaryszewski Park hosts also a number of monuments and sculptures, some of which date from the time of creating the park (meaning 1920s), and interesting flora with a number of unique species of trees.
The park is very well maintained, but that's not the case with the playground for children, which although fenced, is rather neglected and not so much of interest.
When visiting this park, especially with children, remember to bring nuts, to delight the squirrels living here, which are often so tame that they can be fed from hand.
One of the most interesting attractions is the possibility of renting vessels such as kayaks (20 PLN/h) or boats (from 20 PLN/h) and swim at the local pond.
