City park in Nysa

The City Park in Nysa is a large historic park with an area of ​​approx. 42 ha. It was designed on the model of English landscape parks, in which freedom and romance were to dominate. In the past, the park was wet with two branches of the Biała Głuchołaska River flowing through it. Over the years, the area was drained by erecting, among others, mills and fortresses in Prussian times. In the vicinity of the Młynówka canal, there used to be bishop's gardens. At the end of the 19th century, the now useless elements of the fortifications began to be dismantled. In their place, new alleys were built and trees were planted, including: poplars, maples, lindens, and ash trees. Two characteristic ponds were created, where you could go boating. The park area is often inhabited by very original species, such as: - Common Swift - related to the American hummingbirds. The Swift spends its entire life in flight, hunting insects and reaching speeds of 200 km / h, and in horizontal flight 170 - 180 km / h, while in flight it also drinks water, copulates and collects material for the nest, catching feathers and blades of grass. Soaring 2.5 to 3 km, the Swifts go to sleep; - herald, also known as the mockingbird, whose singing was formerly translated with the words "cycle, cycle, cycle, dad beats dad, beats seven times, times seven, times seven, times seven"; - Ringed alexandretta, a parrot native to Central Africa and the Indian Peninsula (in Nysa it appears as a "escapee from captivity"). In 2018, its brood was recorded, which is the first in Poland. Currently, there are about 10 individuals in the park; - kestrel falcon, hunting birds in the city and rodents outside the city, - green woodpecker, - the ponds and canals of the park are inhabited by the mallard, mute swan, coot, and moose.
