The paper contains an introduction to the principles of landscape planning and presents the benefits of establishing a linear Ślęza River Park. It is one of five river parks that may be created in flooded areas in Wrocław, forming the core of the Green Infrastructure system. The adopted form of the landscape plan refers to similar studies from Germany, the Netherlands and the UK. In Polish conditions, the plan has an innovative character and enables the implementation of a number of technical and organizational solutions, leading to a more synergetic use of environmental resources in the belt of riverside areas. The program of the management of the park and the related tourist trail refers to the history of Western Slavs, called Sleenzane, who inhabited the basin of Ślęza in the early Middle Ages. Along the river there are many archaeological sites from this period and the route Wrocław with the massif of mount Ślęża – the holy place of ancient worship in Silesia.
