Opening season at Forest Potok in Bolesławiec

The Municipal Sports and Recreation Centre in Bolesławiec invites you to Leśny Potok at Jeleniogórska Street in Bolesławiec.

The complex is divided into a section of swimming and plant filters – water filtered through the plant biosystem, without the involvement of chemicals. In the complex there are also technical facilities, cloakroom and catering facilities, pedestrian-driving, playground, beach volleyball, tennis courts, a jetty for anglers. The area is fenced and illuminated. At the complex there is a parking lot for 66 parking spaces.

In the pre-war period, the tank was used as a place of recreation, it also served as a retention tank. During World War II, the facility was partially destroyed and used until the end of the 1970s by the military. Thanks to the revitalization of the water reservoir, a small retention object was reconstructed, which organizes the hydrological and flood-proof situation in the city.

On 17–21.06.2024, the facility will be open from 14.00 to 19.00. From 22.06.2024, we invite you to the facility every day from Monday to Sunday from 10.00 to 19.00.
