Project Specification

From April 2018 this public park will form the entrance to the Landesgartenschau castle. The park, built in 1913 as a railway station, lies in the west of the city which acts as a green axis between the station and the city center. The 9.5-hectare park is permanently upgraded in terms of function and design in order to fulfill its role as a central inner city park and recreation center. The fire brigade monument and the honorary cemeteries are a contrast between the places of silent remembrance. In addition, historical tombstones and 24 pattern tombs are presented in the park.

Before the opening of the Garden Show, more than 135 trees will be anchored in the park with underfloor anchoring systems by Platipus. As an alternative to wooden poles, this anchoring method ensures an undisturbed landscape a swell as providing a healthy, unobstructed way to grow.

“Our experience, in working with a Citygreen Design Studio was second to none. We found responses from the design studio to be very timely, and technically thorough. We went backwards and forwards a number of times, looking at different iterations of the design and, nothing was too much trouble to examine and explore different possibilities. I would highly recommend the Citygreen Design Studio to any future client considering using your services.”
