Neighborhoods of Białołęki:
Białołęka is one of the youngest districts in Warsaw considering the age of its inhabitants. About two-thirds of Białołęki residents live in multi-storey residential complexes. Nowodwory microdistrict has the largest number of inhabitants. From the south, Nowodwory adjoins Tarchominiu, the construction of which began in the 1970s. Both of these microdistricts occupy the territory between the Vistula River, the Modlińskiej axis and st. General Kuklinskiego. A lot of multi-apartment and row houses with related infrastructure are still being built here. More and more people live in apartment buildings in Żeraniu (near Portowej, Kasztanowej, Igrzyskowej and Krzyżówki streets) and in Marcelinie (Marywilska street).
Neighborhoods of individual houses occupy the northern and northeastern parts of the district (to the line of the Żerańskiego canal). Among them, the most densely built-up and populated are: Wiśniewo, Henryków, Choszczówka, Płudy and Białołęka Dworska, as well as Anecin, Winnica and Buchnik.
The districts of Kątów Grodziskich, Grodziska, Lewandowa, Białołęki, Mańków-Wojdów, Augustówka, Olesina, Kobiałki, Marcelina, Brzezin and Szamocina are less populated. This huge, beautifully located area, unique for Warsaw, is located in the north-eastern part of the district. It is granite with the reserve Łęgi Czarnej Strugi and is separated by a green waterway through the Zegrzyński reservoir and the Żerańskim canal. However, today these lands are increasingly being developed by developers of low-rise residential and commercial buildings. New apartment complexes are being built mainly in Kobiałce, Grodzisku and Lewandowie.
Many industrial and technical areas are located in the southwestern part of Białołęki, in the residential areas of Stare Świdry, Konstantynów, Różopol, Tarchomin, Annopol, Żerań and Żerań Wschodni. Here are the headquarters of Coca-Cola, the printing house AGORA SA, the Warsaw traffic junction (ul. Odlewnicza). In Żerania, on the other hand, there is Elektrociepłownia Żerań, the second largest in Warsaw in terms of heat generation.
Nature of Bialołęki
Rivers and canals in Białolęce:
Białołęka is located on the right bank of the Vistula River. The second largest watercourse is the Żerański canal, also known as the Królewski canal. This water route, which started in Warsaw (now in Białołęce), was laid out in the 16th century by Stefan Batory. On it it was possible to go through Zalew Zegrzyński, Narew and Biebrzę, to Niemna. The channel is a popular place for recreation, water sports and fishing.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the former Skurczę River was completely rebuilt and named the Henrykowski Canal. The source is located on the street. Kątskiego and ends its course, flowing into the Buchnik canal in Jabłonnie. In the eastern part of Białolenka, the two largest watercourses are the Bródnowski Canal and the Markowski Canal. The Bródnowski canal in the area has a length of about 3.6 km and flows into the Żerańskiego canal at the level of the Brzeziny residential area. It feeds mainly on rainwater.
There is also the former river Długa (Ząza), now called the Markowski Canal. In the 1970s, it flowed meanderingly, but now it is regulated.
Forests in Bialołęce:
The forest areas of Białołęki cover an area of more than 900 hectares. Most of them are state forests administered by the Jabłonna Forest Inspectorate. State forests are located mainly in Choszczówce and on the border with Jabłonna commune. These are forests with a predominance of pine and an admixture of birch.
A smaller area is occupied by municipal forests administered by the city. These include: Henryków forest (49.8 ha), Dąbrówka forest (27.29 ha), Białołęka forest (44.88 ha) and Żerańska dune (17.94 ha). Pine trees also predominate here, mainly from post-war plantings of coniferous forests. In Dąbrówce there are rare pine trees over a hundred years old.
The rest of the forests are owned by private owners or have an unregulated legal status.
Fauna in Bialołęce:
The animal world is most numerously represented by birds. Białołęce has the largest number of stork nests in Warsaw, located mainly in the eastern part of the district.
In addition, the area has a large population of bats. They can often be seen at the cemetery at st. Mehoffera, where specially prepared houses were installed.

Many protected animals are also observed in the area:
birds living near the water - mute swan, merganser, white-tailed eagle, gulls - black-headed, common, silver, yellow-footed, white-headed and saddle-headed.
birds that live mainly in forests - sparrowhawk, turtledove, lark, hairy buzzard, green and black woodpecker, hawk, yellow-crested crest and hoopoe - are a faunal rarity in the vicinity of Warsaw.
Mammals are dominated by: mice, squirrels, moles, hedgehogs, martens, foxes, hares, rabbits, roe deer, moose and wild boars. Beavers also made permanent nests, choosing the area near the Zheran Canal as their habitat.

Part of its area (88.26 ha) is located in Białołęce.
The forest dunes in Nowodworach and Tarchominie, as well as the buffer zone of the Czarnej Strugi nature reserve near the Olesin microdistrict, are under special protection.
