MILLENIUM PARK in Zielona Góra, Poland by Salony Foundation and BWA Zielona Góra

Millenium Park in Zielona Góra until the 1960s. functioned as the Green Cross cemetery. Upper branches of trees let hardly any light inside the park, ground level lacks lower greenery – that is why the park seems to be dark and dangerous.

Our main idea was to bring back life into Millenium Park, eliminate spatial obstacles preventing the park to become unique, multifunctional public space.

Nowadays the park is cut by an overlapping maze of mostly unused and faded footpaths. The project reduces existing paths and transforms them into functional network.

Communication is organised with the following elements:

  • Grand pedestrian & bike loop, which allow fast commuting along the borders of the park;
  • Characteristic entrance gates to the park;
  • Longitudinal boulevard and transversal paths;
  • Strolling loops of differentiated functions and themes.

Strolling loops group functions which differ in their character and taget profile of future users. The abstract loop is sensoric zone, which could be explored intuitively. Zone dedicated to integration of the local community with integrated communication axis going through the Park is called the Local Community/Transit Loop. The active recreation loop defines a sport zone surrounded by lush greenery. Wandering/Sense-Stimulating Loop contains all the characteristic features of Millenium Park (terraces, historic greenery arrangements).

New functions inside the park are cliché of urban public spaces’ functions, modified and transformed into spontaneous and casual format of Millenium Park. Spaces in-between functional loops are filled with rows of trailing plants or low bushes. Plants enscibe multilayered history of the park- they mark the terraces’ borders and emphasize a historical arrangement of pathways. After some time, plants will go off the given tracks, forming green carpet covering the park.

The revitalisation project of Millenium Park leaves the site as multithreaded space dedicated to differentiated users. Millenium Park becomes public space in the city centre of Zielona Góra, with characteristics and qualities of lush green forests surrounding the city.

The revitalisation project was based on a report ‘Social concept for land use of Millenium Park’, prepared by Salony Foundation and BWA Zielona Góra with support of Zielona Góra City Council in 2012.
