Warsaw’s greenery authority, ZZW, have announced the forthcoming development of seven pocket parks across the city.
Set to be financed as part of the civic budget, the new parks will be developed in locations around Bielany, Praga-Południe, Praga-Północ, Ursynów and Mokotów. Of these, six will make their debut as early as this year.
Occupying plots of between 400 sq/m and 2,000 sq/m, the parks will all feature pedestrian paths, trees, shrubs and street furniture. Eco friendly, each will also have bird shelters, so-called ‘insect hotels’, and a rich selection of plants and shrubs chosen with pollinators in mind.
They’ll join the two pocket parks unveiled previously this year in Bemowo and Mokotów.
Having already enjoyed much success in Kraków, pocket parks seek to revive forgotten urban corners and nourish the environment whilst simultaneously reconnecting communities and providing them with green-minded leisure spots.
