The Botanical Garden – attractions for nature lovers
The Botanical Garden is located at Botaniczna Street in Zielona Góra and covers an area of over 2 ha. Interestingly, the first garden was established in this place in 1925. A network of park alleys was created at that time, but unfortunately they have not survived to this day.
When rebuilding the garden, efforts were made to recreate it according to the original assumptions, including a pond and an alpine garden with mountain plants, which are characteristic of the Karkonosze Mountains. The garden was divided into the so-called plant zones where you can admire specimens from different continents as well as those characteristic of the region and useful plants, such as thyme.
Nature lovers can now see around 500 species and varieties of plants in the garden. The collection is dominated by trees and shrubs located in the thematic sections:
- Department of Moisture-loving Plants,
- Plant Systematics Department,
- Geographic Department,
- Mountain plants department.
