Berlin surely might be short on many things — public parks are definitely not among them. From vast Tempelhof to our makeshift home in the summer Görlitzer Park, there’s enough green for everyone to get around. And: there’s another one to add to the list, the Gleisdreieck Park.
I’d never been there before as it only opened a couple of months ago, but it’s more like an adventurous childs dreams than an average park. Basically, it’s got EVERYTHING — yes, I get very excited about these things: playgrounds (from basic to fancy), skating bowls, football and basketball courts, ping pong tables, BMX hills, a community garden, loads of free green space and wild, old tracks of the former stations (Potsdamer– and Anhaltergüterbahnhof). It all makes for an amazingly well planned and beautiful new park to hang out in the summer. Mind you, the park is not completely done yet: “Westpark” is still to be finished next year.
Stefan and I decided to pay the area a visit a week ago and snap a couple of pictures. It’s great even when the sun is not out, so take a stroll while it’s still empty and peaceful and new! Thanks to Stefan for most of these amazing pictures as I lost a ton of mine due to being too careless while transferring my own..
