Revitalized Mill Island in Bydgoszcz - the identity of the place created by the Brda River and its tributary named Młynowka

Abstract

Mill Island in Bydgoszcz, Poland is an example of downtown public space where a meander of the Młynówka creates the identity of the area.Before 2005, the only outstanding local feature was the fact that its south and west ends resembled the Venetian canals. The way the other parts of Mill Island were managed was inappropriate for a downtown.A comprehensive revitalization programme is returning Mill Island public space to residents, highlighting its historical and cultural value as well as its aesthetic, recreational, touristic and environmental quality. Three newly built pedestrian bridges enable downtown cultural services to be integrated with the high recreational potential of the island. The most important is the one leading to the Opera Theatre Square.The regional touristic value of the site is determined by the location of the Antwerp-Kaliningrad water route. The revitalization of Bydgoszcz Water Junction, which forms a part of this trail, has become a significant step in the implementation of the Downtown Spatial Development Programme of Bydgoszcz city. The process of re-orientation of the city centre towards the river will finish with the construction of a marina.
