Mill Island is the green heart of Bydgoszcz, an enclave in the city centre. People coming here can relax in the park, among alleys lined with old trees, vast lawns, and alleys with benches, listening to the rapidly falling water at the weir and culvert. Water surrounds everything. From the direction of the Old Town, we can find the Brda Młynówka river, running fast and nervously, along with the wall of Bydgoszcz Venice. Across from it is the vast main riverbed of the Upper Brda, featuring such landmarks as the stately Cathedral and Opera Nova. Thanks to revitalization, this place has become the favourite hangout of the local residents. Here, we can also find the historical buildings of the Museum with modern upgrades, water tram stop, yacht marina, playground, amphitheatre, numerous hiking and biking paths, and even a beach next to the spacious lawn on which Bydgoszcz residents enjoy lounging on their blankets. Old granaries and mills house exhibitions of the Leon Wyczółkowski District Museum. The old granary at 1 Mennica Street, dating from the mid-19th century, once used for storing bagged grains, has been turned into a stylish restaurant. The building at 6 Mennica Street, after careful renovation, has been transformed into the Centre of Employment and Entrepreneurship.
