It was a lazy Sunday on June 7 for my wife and I as we took a walk around Zbiornik retencyjny Srebrniki (Srebrniki storage reservoir) in the district of Wrzeszcz.
To be frank, our main intention was to check out whether there were any elderflowers among the greenery surrounding the reservoir. After all, there’s nothing better to drink on a warm summer’s day than cold homemade elderflower cordial. We picked just enough elderflowers to make nine litres of juice.
Even though we were on a mission, we still paid heed to our watery surroundings.
Srebrniki reservoir has an area of 2.58 hectares. Currently, the tank has a special device for aerating water (dismantled for the winter), resembling a very impressive fountain.
The area is partly isolated from the street with an ecological screen, but this does not provide complete peace.
