In the 1889 year, on the part of Blonia (grass land for pasturing cattle) there was established recreational park in English garden style for children and young people. In the central point of the park we can find circular maze of cropped hornbeams (bot. Carpinus betulus) with flower bed in the center. The inventor and founder of this park, dr Henryk Jordan ordered busts of famous Polish people. Until the 1907 sculptors Alfred Daun and Michal Korpal made 45 of them.
Monument of the inventor (designed by Jan Szczepkowski) was unveiled in the center of the labirynth 25 years after establishing the park (21.VI.1914). In the II world war park was devastated but 22 busts and monument of Jordan was saved by F. Luczywo. After the war area of the park was enlarged to 21 ha. Association of dr Henryk Jordan's Park restored previous idea of the founder. New sport fields and sport arrangements, sledge mountain, amphiteatre, track for learning bicycle are the place for children to spend their free time in happy and worthy way.

Very important place of the park is a pond (water pool), visible on our panorama - an charming ornament and place for children to do water sports like little trips by boats and water bicycles.
Such recreational places for children and young people in Poland are called Jordan Gardens.
