Weekends in Discovery Park

This year, Discovery Park will turn into a space of creative activities. Each weekend you will experience our original set of outdoor activities and attractions.

Feel invited to join our DIY workshops, design classes and see how to build gardening infrastructure; visit our mini-market and experience interesting artistic happenings. Relax on our outdoor lounging chairs, enjoy an interesting read or rent a board or outdoor game. On Saturday nights, musical excitement will be provided by DJ Niesłychany Faffini. On Sundays we will organise scientific demonstrations on our summer stage - they will amuse and amaze even the grimmest of our visitors! Additionally, in August you will be able to observe the night skies over Warsaw, guided by our skilled Planetarium staff. Admission to all our attractions if free of charge and not subject to enrolment although the number of visitors is limited.
