The Szyc Stadium is located in the heart of Poznań, 1,5 km from old town. It was constructed in twenties and was serving as a football stadium until '95. For a last quarter of a century it has been successively inhabited by non-human habitants of the city. The tribune surrounding the stadium became the ground for at least two thousand trees growing there of more than 40 different species. The pitch of the field became a diverse meadow full of flowers which are attracting the pollinators. We found there as well fox's den. An ornithologist carried out a bird inventory. At the entrance in the ancient cloakrooms is living a couple of humans with a dog and a cat. The future live of all the habitants of the stadium is endangered. The city authorities are planning to build a Music Center there.
