Park

The garden has preserved its original layout till today. As you go eastwards, a neo-baroque gate, made in the early 20th century by 'Gostyński i Spółka' of Warsaw, will open the way for you to the residence's courtyard. The buildings, gradually rising as they are and connected with S-shaped curtain walls, add a monumental quality to the palace's body.
To the east, a garden spreads which refers in its division into sections to a renaissance quarter layout, its prominent element being a salon with symmetrically shaped stalls (or parterres) surrounded with boxwood and rose bands. Deeper on, the salon is somewhat narrower, with a semi-circularly topped stall. In the palace direct neighbourhood is a fountain featuring putti figurines cast at Le Val d'Osne in Paris.
At the salon's waist place, at the east, a fieldstone monument is erected where a bronze plate is fixed, cast by Łopieński Brothers, Warsaw, commemorating the resting place of the ashes of Napoleonic soldiers taking part in the year 1812 campaign. The 20th century saw extension of the Park northward, with a pheasantry arranged at the site, and eastward, which was to become a bestiary, paying tribute to the tradition. Today, the former pheasantry building contains aviaries where beautiful game birds are bred. There is a picnic ground arranged on midforest clearings, with a grilling and banqueting place; a playground for the youngest visitors to Kozłówka is located near by. A secluded 'nook' immersed in flowers from spring until autumn is the rose garden situated in the northern section of the palace complex. The tree-stand of the Kozłówka Park is mostly composed of lime-trees and maples, but there also are oaks, one of which - growing in the courtyard - is a natural monument; there are chestnut trees, hornbeams, pines and spruces, poplars and birches. The Kozłówka Park is one of the very few places in Europe where you can admire such robust and shapely elm trees.
