The Municipal Centre of Sport and Recreation (MOSiR) in the Sport Department


The Municipal Centre of Sport and Recreation (MOSiR) is a municipal organisational entity. The Mayor of the City of Lodz supervises and controls the MOSiR and its operations through the Director of the Sports Division of the Lodz City Office’s Department for Social Affairs. This entity delivers tasks related to physical culture and sport addressed to Lodz inhabitants, particularly through:

  • Organisation of mass recreational, sporting and tourist events,
  • Administration of sport and recreation facilities

The MOSiR is the biggest recreation and sport centre in the central Poland. Green grounds, bathing sites, harbours, swimming pools, ice-rinks, sports halls, sports grounds and tennis courts gather a large number of sports enthusiasts, and its diverse offer attracts almost half a million visitors a year to its facilities.

“Arturówek” recreation and leisure centre is one of the facilities owned by the MOSiR, and that is why the MOSiR implements the “Ecohydrological rehabilitation of the recreational Arturowek (Lodz) reservoirs as a model approach to rehabilitation of urban reservoirs” Project under the Life + Programme.

It is a recreation centre in Lodz, situated in Lagiewnicki Forest, within the Bzura River water-heads area.

Three ponds have been developed in this site. One of them has been established for bathing purposes – it holds a beautiful and wide beach to provide a place of relaxation for lovers of water and sun bathing. The Voluntary Water Rescue Team’s qualified lifeguards keep watch over the safety of the bathers. The second pond has been designed for water sports fans, for whom the MOSIR’s rental shop offers the following water equipment: canoes, hydrobikes and boats. Safety in this site is also overseen by a lifeguard.

A fenced playground with numerous slides, merry-go-rounds and sandpits is found near the reservoir. A fitness trail and a mini gym have also been developed in its vicinity. The third pond is a retention reservoir.

A holiday resort with accommodation available in rooms located in a pavilion or bungalows is found in the immediate vicinity of the ponds. Clay courts have been developed nearby.
