Tricity Landscape Park (TPK – Trójmiejski Park Krajobrazowy) was created in 1979, covering an area of around 20 thousands ha. The Park is a protected area with regard to its historical, natural and cultural values.
After taking tram number 10 to PKM brętowo – this particular line’s final stop – my wife and I walked in a westerly direction, reaching Potokowa Street in the neighbourhood of Matemblowo.
At the end of Potokowa Street, upon entrance to the Park, you will see a sign reading: Rezerwat przyrody Dolina Strzyży. This translates to “The Strzyża Valley Nature Reserve”. Strzyża is actually one of the quarters of Gdańsk, named after a creek.
A visit to this part of the Tricity Landscape Park may be combined with a stroll around the nearby Jasień Reservoir and Staw Wróbla Lake. Residents of Alfa Park, a housing estate which borders the landscape park, are really spoilt for choice when it comes to getting out in the fresh air.
