Baroque Park Complex – progress of works
Construction works in the Bishops’ Gardens in Pelplin are progressing. The works on the paths and alleys in the park are well advanced. The laying of curbs and edging has been completed, and the paving of park paths is in progress. Power supply lines for both the lighting in the park and the monitoring system are also ready – in the next stage lamps, cameras and other elements will be installed. Work on the irrigation system is also progressing. The main water pipes, irrigation sections and irrigation wells have already been placed.
The basic restoration of greenery in the park has also been completed. Treatments on trees were conducted in the hornbeam and lime avenue, where sanitary and reduction cuts were made. The works also included such operations as grubbing up bushes, milling of trunks and cleaning the area.
The first works have also begun in one of the two historic buildings within the Bishops’ Gardens planned for renovation under the project – the 19th century Cart House. The scope of works includes a thorough renovation of the building together with its extension with a glass corridor in the courtyard and adapting it to the function of an exhibition and education centre. The building will house the Cistercian Gardens Gallery, presenting exhibitions connected with the Cistercians and conducting cultural and educational activities.
