King of trees in the local park..

22nd November 2014

During my staying in my summer house I love walking as you know. Last time when we were at our summer place ( 10th November) I decided to visit local park which is very old. There are different species of trees there but the most impressive are oaks. In Poland oaks are called "king of trees" because they are very strong and live very long definitely much longer than people.


 The oaks are over 100 years old they were planted by the owners of the big mansion which is located in the park. In the beginning of the 20th century this mansion belonged to a very rich family. After WWII Polish government took care of it. And since 1950 secondary school is located here.

The local park is not so big but so friendly and well-maintained by local authorities.
