Lubomyśl is included in the oldest Lusatian settlements in the Żary Land. It has changed name many times in its rich history. The German name was: Waltersdorf, Lusatian: Wałtarjejce, Polish: Walterowie and Lubomyśl. The village was first mentioned in 1381. It appears in the list of names from the land register under the rule of the Bibersteins. Waltersdorf was then inhabited by 18 people. On 6th January, 1480 Johan von Biberstein mortgaged Waltersdorf under the rule of (Żary), Beeskau and Storkow (nowadays east Germany in Sprewa region). On 3^rd June, 1490 the cities of Sorau (Żary), Beeskau and Storkow sold the villages received earlier (including Waltersdorf) to the reign of Saxon princes. In the 19th century, Waltersdorf belonged to Sorau parish. It should be assumed that in 1933 in Waltersdorf there was a branch of a Protestant school from Reinswalde, what is certified by archive news referring to the ownership of this school within the area of Waltersdorf dating back to 1933, found on a website of the State Archives in Zielona Góra. In 1939 Waltersdorf was inhabited by 399 people. From 1946 there resided Poles – transferred, among others, from the west and central Poland. The monuments in the village are: a chapel near the cemetery from the 19th century, buildings of post-German farm complex and a monumental wall of stone close to the present park.
