The park has been awarded the German Landscape Architecture Prize 2015 for produces outstanding quality in design and construction through to property and detailed planning. An essential element of the park architecture is the preservation of the ruderal flora, i.e. the proliferation, which was once prevented by the old railway installation. Some of the old signalling and railway facilities are still present in the park, giving it its own particular flair. The intercultural Rosenduftgarten (Rose Scent Garden) is especially worthwhile visiting, as it is cultivated by various neighbourhood communities and therefore a riotous mix of colours is to be expected. In contrast, there’s rather more activity going on in the nature discovery area, where city kids can really get stuck into playing in the mud and experiencing the natural environment at close quarters. There’s also a museum railway operating, continuing the distinctive motif of its railway origins. Skaters can enjoy one of the largest skating areas in the city, and there’s plenty of room for joggers, table-tennis players and yoga lovers to pursue their passions. In 2013 the western part of the park was opened, where there’ll also be plenty of open spaces for botanical and sporting activities.
