The Park was established in 1985 in order to preserve and protect the outstanding landscape and natural values of the central part of the Lubuskie Lake District.
The diversified lie of the land was shaped during the last Ice Age. The distinctive features of the landscape are deep tunnel valleys with picturesque lakes full of fish, of a characteristic oblong shape, a diversified shoreline and considerable depth. These are, among others, the following lakes: Trześniowskie – one of the ten deepest lakes in Poland, Łagowskie, Buszno and Buszenko Lakes. In the Łagowsko – Sulęciński Landscape Park there is the highest hill in the Lubuskie Lake District - Bukowiec, 227 m above sea level, as well as steep hills overgrown with beech forests, fields and meadows with lush fauna and numerous rare species of animals.
The Łagowsko – Sulęciński Landscape Park is located in the Łagów and Sulęcin Municipalities. It covers an area of 4929 ha, and the protection zone covers 6612 ha. There is a network of well marked tourist and cycling routes and nature paths in the Park, which allows people to get to know the tourist and natural attractions well. Until 2011 the Park was called the Łagowski Landscape Park.
More than 65% of the area of the Łagowsko – Sulęciński Landscape Park is covered by deciduous and mixed forests. The vast areas of beech forests are the most valuable, however. In the northern part of the Park, densely growing yew is also of importance. Peat bogs occur in small areas, in closed depressions, and narrow strips of wet meadows stretch along watercourses.
More than 550 plant species, including many rare and protected ones, can be found in the Park. They include: forest orchids, broad-leaved orchids, twayblades, sweet wood-ruffs, white water lilies, yellow water lilies, sundews, common columbines, snowdrops, bog cranberries, bog rosemary, and clubmoss: stiff clubmoss, wolf's-foot clubmoss, and others.
Many rare and protected species of animals find shelter in the Park: white-tailed eagles, black storks, common goldeneyes, eagle owls, hobbies, otters, and cranes. Various forest mammals also live there: red deer, roe-deer, wild boar, fox, polecat and hedgehog. Interesting species of reptiles and amphibia also deserve attention: smooth snakes, European tree frogs, fire-bellied toads, green toads, and some rare fish species, such as vendace and whitefish.
There are 3 nature reserves in the Park:
The Łagowski Beechwood Forest – covering the area of 116 ha, in which the most valuable fragments of beech forests are protected;
A reserve at Trześniowskie Lake – covering the area of 50 ha, in which a beautiful tunnel valley landscape is protected;
Pawski Ług – covering the area of 32 ha, in which a mosaic of forest and peat environments is protected.
The following objects of interest can also be found in the Łagowsko – Sulęciński Landscape Park and its vicinity:
A church tower hidden among trees, which is a remainder of the former village of Lędów;
The ruin of a forester's lodge near Buszno Lake, once inhabited by the Winkler family who had been foresters for generations. A beautiful horse-chestnut alley leads to the ruin. Splendid Douglas firs grow nearby as well;
