Stretching out for nearly two-kilometres, a stunning linear park is set to be created in the southern district of Ursynów.
Covering a total footprint of approximately ten hectares, the park will see 1,000 trees planted and over 100,000 shrubs, vines and perennials.
Of its other features, a promenade running its entire length will be built, alongside walkways, wooden terraces, recreational areas and a rain garden.
However, whilst the design has been all but completed, additional funds still need to be secured for the project to be executed in its entirety.
Magdalena Młochowska of Zielonej Warszawy said: “We have divided the investment into six stages so that each can be completed as soon as possible. We want to announce a tender this quarter so as to enable field works to begin this year – but, we need the support of city councillors.”
So far around PLN 11 million has been reserved for the project, leaving a shortfall of PLN 33 million. Whether or not this will be granted will be decided at the next session of the city’s council.
Hopes, though, remain high given that two sections will be delivered in accordance with the finances that have already been confirmed.
Robert Kempa, the Mayor of Ursynów, said: “When we started this project in 2016, I wasn’t sure we’d ever reach this stage but now a tender is to be announced for the first two sections. In the spring of 2024 works on the section running from Al. KEN to Stryjeńskich will be complete, and in the spring of 2025 the section from Al. KEN to Rosoła should be finished. By the end of 2025, we hope that the section between Rosoła and escarpment by Pilecki and Stryjeński should also be finished.”
