Pole Mokotowskie (Polish for "Mokotów Field"; often erroneously referred to by newcomers to Warsaw in the plural form, Pola Mokotowskie, "Mokotów Fields") is a large park in Warsaw. Part of it is called "Józef Piłsudski Park."

Located between Warsaw's Mokotów district and the city center, the park is one of the largest in Warsaw.[2] Until World War II, a major part was occupied by an airfield and the Warsaw Polytechnic aircraft works.[3]

Pole Mokotowskie was also, until 1934, the site of Warsaw Airport and, until 1939, of the Warsaw Horse Racing Track.[3]

Located within the park is the Polish National Library. The park is also famous for its bars. Just to the south is a Warsaw Metro station, the Pole Mokotowskie station.
