“Awesome for small kids”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We were on a 8 day tour of France, Switzerland and Italy.

We had a to drive from Strasbourg to Milan, a 5 hour drive.
To make things easier on our kids, we scheduled two stops.
The 1st was the park (more on this later), the 2nd was a lunch break.

So we arrived at the park, easily finding free parking around it.
As others have written it's a nice place for a picnic or having a BBQ, others have done so while we were visiting, including a birthday party.

We had other plans, and just wanted to let the kids let loose.
So they played in the water, and in all the different playgrounds
It was well worth the one hour break, and it's one of their fond memories from the trip.
It also gives you great photo ops. Notice some of the attractions can get pretty hot in the sun since they're metal.

So, if you're a tourist, and you want to schedule a stop in Basel, be sure to include this in your plans.

“Lovely park”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

This is a spacious and tranquil place to visit whether its for a quiet stroll or for somewhere to let the children let off steam.
There is a little coffee shop.
Be warned that there is a statue of a giant peeping out from the trees and it has quite a bit of its manhood on display. It seems to be acceptable here in Basel but I'm not sure about it.

“Great for young children”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

This park provides a space where young children can run freely between sand pits and climbing frames and in summer play in water.
For the locals without a garden, it’s an outdoor space to relax and for visitors it’s a park that provides a short cut when walking from Allschwil to Basel.

“Jogging, Kubb, Relaxing - great for all ages”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

Do you like to spend time doing sports or relaxing in parks? Then this is one of Basel's many parks in which you can do exactly that. The great thing about the "KFP" is that you have several barriers (trees / bushes) that separate the park into sections and as such it never really feels crowded but seldom deserted. The park is closed at night and besides it being creepy after dark you really should only use it during the daytime - despite the police station being right nextdoor.
