Go to map

The 8074 ha park covers backwaters at the mouth of the Warta River to the Oder River, largely produced by the Postomia River. The headquarters of the park is located in Chyrzyn near Kostrzyn on the Oder. The park is located in four communes of Górzyca, Kostrzyn nad Odrą, Słońsk and Witnica. The Park's symbol is a goose. The park was founded to protect unique wetlands, vast meadows and pastures, which are one of the most important refuges for water and marsh birds in Poland. 245 species of birds were found in the Park, including 174 breeding ones. As many as 26 of them belong to endangered species on a global scale. These include Aquatic Warbler, Corn Crake, Roar, Crane, Bittern, Spinning Top, Black Tern. Here is the largest wintering ground in Poland of the Arctic Whooper Swan species, as well as about 50 white-tailed eagles, which attracts the abundance of wintering ducks, which are their food. Near Kostrzyn, by the national road No. 22 Kostrzyn nad Odrą - Gorzów Wlkp./Skwierzyna, there are observation points for observers.
