Botanical Garden UKW

Botanical Garden UKW


Botanical Garden (7), which
was opened in 1930 and designed by Marian
Güntzel, director of the Municipal Gardens. The garden was surrounded with fence and divided into the following departments:
systematic, biological, crop plants, and
ornamental plants. The latter featured a
rectangular square, in the middle of which
was a sundial mounted on a raised platform,
with small statues of girls in the corners,
depicting the seasons. A bas-relief map of
Bydgoszcz could be seen in the southern
part of the square, on the fence wall. In 1995,
the Botanical Garden was designated as a
national natural landmark. It was handed
over to the Kazimierz Wielki University in
1999. These days, the garden has more than
300 specimens of trees and shrubs, featuring
unique and relict varieties. Foreign species
originate primarily from Asia and North
America, but there are also trees and shrubs
from the Mediterranean regions, including
North Africa. Half of the plantings come from
Europe. The garden has fifteen varieties of
trees and shrubs that are under protection
(including shrubby birch, dwarf birch,
mezereon, Swiss stone pine, European dwarf
cherry, and European bladdernut). Between April and late autumn, the Park is open to the
public through its main entrance at the corner
of Niemcewicza Street and Weysenhoffa
Street. In winter, the park can be accessed only
from the Kazimierz Wielki University.
