The presence of the river is one of the main factors which create the city. It has a positive effect on climate and human well-being, promotes biodiversity and recreation and improves quality of people life. The Warta River is an important compositional and functional element in Poznan. The valley area of the river within the administrative boundaries of city is subject to a strong human impact. Decline in the economic importance of the river caused a reversal of the city from her. This unfavorable phenomenon continues to present days. Inadequate management of urban riverside areas prevents the use of their potential. More and more devices and hydraulic structures are dangerous for ecosystems in the river. One of the ways of their protection are compact systems of riverside buffer parks. Nowadays we observe the phenomenon of “return to the water”. There is growing consensus about the need to revitalize the riverside areas, which will contribute to the quality of space, improve housing conditions, recover of a neglected area and save the values of cultural and natural heritage. If all goes according to the plan in Poznan also will be “return to the water” and the city will “regain its river”. The proper use of potential that give the rivers in the city should be one of the main activities of contemporary urban planners. The management of the river valleys landscape should be the result of a compromise which takes into account ecological, hydro and anthropogenic factors.
