Very large and diverse park on a hill, with various sculptures and features to see, all very spaced out. The ability to find personal space in this park is easy. It's massive. Also, for historians, you can find the old parts of the fortifications and the graves of both Soviet and Polish soldiers.

This large park was once the site of a German citadel (hence its name) during the 18th century partition of Poland. You can still see the citadel's walls. It also contains a Polish military cemetery. June 1956 matters to Poznan and you will find its victims honoured here. Most striking is the weird but wonderful headless bronze statues installation in the centre of the Park - it's worth going for that alone!

Park Citadel denotes the hill just north of the city centre where Winiary fortress stood until 1945.
In 1962 work was started aiming to create in Cytadela a Park - cum - Monument of Brotherhood in Arms and Friendship between the USSR- Old Russia and other nations with Poland. In 1992 this lengthy name was changed and since then it has been simply Citadel Park. Today the park, together with the cemetery, has an area of around 100 ha so it is really huge.

This park is huge, with lots of different nooks and crannies. Everyone will find something for themselves here. There are places for sports, rollerblading or cycling, playgrounds but also places for reading a book or for a romantic walk. There are numerous sculptures, monuments, a flower garden, a water garden, a rosarium and an amphitheater. You can find here also some restaurants. On the outskirts of the park there are cemeteries of people who died in this land. Additionally, there are many wilderness areas in the park. It seems like a nice place to hang out.

We spent a lovely day here wondering around. The park is very clean with lots of seating places. We had lunch at the cafe near the children’s play area and sat outside in their deckchairs. Great big park, very interesting and well worth a visit.

My Wife and I explored this park and found unlike Warsaw or Krakow this park is dark and wooded it has a very solemn feel to it, we stumbled on some old tanks and then went and visited the Russian and British cemetery. The Russian part is very unkept and looks derelict yet the British part was kept with fresh flowers and manicured lawns and even had an attendance book to sign.

When we visited at The end of February the park was very quiet with only a handful of people out jogging or walking their dogs.

The very interesting military museum in the centre costs about £2 to get in and also gives you access to an area above where you can take a close look at various military aircraft and vehicles.

There's a public loo 1.5Pz and a cafe.

If you need a place to walk, run, ride a bike... this is the place to be, also a lot of grass and benches to sit and rest. Worth seeing freely accessible art by Magdalena Abakanowicz - "The Unrecognised Ones" and a military museum with some old cold war airplanes and military vehicles plus a bonus - access to three or four tanks in front of the museum.

We went here to while away a few hours until we could check into our apartment. The Commonwealth War Cemetery is very moving especially as it in close proximity to the graves of Polish and Russian servicemen. The whole area is nicely kept. The cafe is excellent with good food, very pleasant staff.and prettily decorated. There are two museums there. The history of the area is fascinating.
