The area behind the Independence Museum, between the WZ route, will be greener and a rain garden will be created there.

“We will extend the existing square nearby, where Norway maples already grow. They will be joined by three new trees – balsam amber trees, which take on phenomenal colors in autumn. Instead of the concrete surface of the parking lot that has been closed for years, a rain garden will be created. We want to refer to the work of the famous Warsaw landscape architect Alina Scholtz, which in the 1950s developed a design for greenery accompanying the WZ route under construction,” say the capital's road engineers.

Water for the rain garden, lowered by 40 centimeters in relation to the terrain, will be collected by a low 60-centimeter earth embankment. The project involves planting an area of ​​40 square meters in a rain garden. They will grow there, among others: water mint, marsh geranium, European globeflower, or “Anzac” daylily.

“The shape of the water collecting embankment corresponds to the shape of the front garden of the Przebendowski/Radziwiłł Palace, which was rebuilt in 2020 following the original design from the 18th century,” the road designers emphasize. “This is our investment, which mainly consists in enlarging the biologically active area, enabling plant vegetation and ensuring rainwater retention,” they add

Removal of concrete and greenery of the square behind the Independence Museum is part of a larger, already open tender. Road construction workers are waiting for offers until May 24, 2024.
