Zwierzyniecki Woods is a reserve established to conserve the eastern and central part of Zwierzyniecki Park. The purpose of the reserve is to maintain forest sections that have properties of wet-ground forest. Despite the near vicinity of the city, the vegetation in the reserve retained its natural character to a large extent. The flora of the reserve is abundant and comprises almost exclusively of species that are found in natural forest communities. Here and there approximately 100 years old hornbeams and alders remained. In the times of the Branicki family the forest was a fenced game park where noblemen often organized hunting games. It was inhabited by deers, fallow deers, pheasants, partridges, wild ducks and swans. In Zwierzyniec Woods it is particularly worth to: look for geophytes in the spring, imagine how the forests located within the city limits used to look centuries ago.
