Jordan's Park in Krakow

 

Home > What to see > Around the old town > Jordan's Park


Jordan's Park is located in Krakow’s Blonia. It was established in 1889 as the first public playground in Krakow packed with things for youngsters.


A great educational reformer, Professor Henryk Jordan inspired this big park for children. He believed that children needed to exercise both mind and body, leading to the interesting mix of outdoor museum (busts of great Polish writers) and sport field (basketball courts, a small kayaking pool, etc.) in part financed by Jordan himself. Most recent additions include a skateboarding ramp. It is best in summer but even in winter there are places for sledding.
