It has lots of small open spots hidden by trees so there is some privacy. A running track circles it so there is a lot of jogger traffic.

Large playgrounds and play areas dominate this park, and vast swathes of grass allow for comfortable relaxation or activities. A gravel path circumnavigates the entire walled park (it is closed overnight), and there are various other paths that slice through the middle of the park....More

It's a green space, which are actually quite limited in Basel. But other than that it's pretty average in terms of flora and facilities. Ok for a warm day or a stroll but certainly not worth making a special visit.

This is one of my and kids favorite playgrounds. It has lots of space, many attractions for the kids including their favorite climbing tower with slides. There is as well a small coffee where you can as well buy ice cream in the summer

Came across this place by accident when stopped in Basel on a river cruise and found it to be an oasis in the city for a pleasant walk. Popular with families.

A very nice park\green space in the city. It's acceptable to Bar-B-Q here if you want. There are places for children to play as well as places for adults to relax far away from those loud happy little people - overall a nice place to...More

This park brings back childhood memories, as I grew up in the neighborhood! - It used to be a cemetary until 1932. There are still a few tombs as monuments there. The parks has opened 65 years ago, there are quite a few old trees...More
