Picture taken in Zdrowie Park.

Marshal Józef Piłsudski's Park [Zdrowie Park]

The park was founded in place of the suburban forest felled during the World War 1, situated to the west of the Warsaw-Kalisz railway from 1903.

The original park scheme was planned already in the early 20th century, It was finally realised in 1924-1929, while the existing older plans were corrected and supplemented by S. Rogowicz in the 1930s. The park was supposed to serve for the inhabitants' active rest and recreation and it was supplied with a number of additional attraction, like the zoo (founded in 1938), children's playgrounds - the Jordan gardens, lunapark, exhibition areas, the 'Polesie Konstantynowskie' nature reserve, sports objects, etc. The park is covered in natural and composed flora and - with its 237 ha in sizeit remains one of the largest projects of this sort in Europe between the wars. The composition of the whole used to be organised by means of the three main axes, lined with the Pennsylvania ash tree and Crimea linden, which meet radially at the crossing with al. Unii. There were two monuments that were supposed to stand at the al. Konstantynowska: to Liberty and to the Missing.

The other, commemorating the burial ground of the 1905 revolutionaries was, indeed, executed in the 1920s. Destroyed by the Nazis, it was reconstructed in 1975 as a monumental the Revolution Memorial. The park was never fully completed before the war. It was further expanded in 1971/72 where a beautiful botanical garden according to H. Tomaszewski was founded in its south-western part. From the west the park borders the Łódź Sports Club with its stadium pitch and a gymnasium.

Today, eighty years having passed since its earliest beginnings we can fully appreciate its values and importance in the life of the city. It still is a great attraction for the people, and it seems, there is no person who would not have strolled along its shady alleys but once.

Hi Grzeg,
Absolutely superb shot, which could fit both into "Fungi" and "Insects" category. :) Crystal clear sharpness, nice colours, good POV. Bravo.
About ID spec.: I think this is something from Pluteus genus, but I'm not sure about the exact ID, unfortunately.
