Szczecin Landscape Park "Beech Woods" (Polish: Szczeciński Park Krajobrazowy "Puszcza Bukowa") is a protected area (Landscape Park) in north-western Poland, established in 1981 and covering an area of 91 square kilometres (35 sq mi). Its full name refers to the dense forest known as Puszcza Bukowa ("beech forest"), which covers most of the area of the Park.
The Park lies within West Pomeranian Voivodeship, partly within the city of Szczecin, and partly in Gryfino County (Gmina Gryfino, Gmina Stare Czarnowo). It is composed of seven nature reserves from 24 hectares (59 acres) to 208 hectares (510 acres) in size.
