Since its opening as part of the Federal Garden Show in 1985, the award-winning Britzer Garten has stood for a colorful diversity of plants, recreation, and a multi-layered interweaving of landscape, art, and architecture.
Berlin and its residents have changed a lot in recent years. Stressed city dwellers need space for recreation and sports activities, young-at-heart elderly people are looking for health-promoting offers and families with children need places to play and romp. The importance of the Britzer Garten as an open space for recreation, exercise and inspiration in a big city like Berlin is currently even more evident during the Corona crisis. This makes it all the more important to preserve the Britzer Garten as a barrier-free green oasis in the middle of the city and to allow it to grow with people's changing needs. This is because the park can accommodate the changing living conditions of people and thus continue to make its unique contribution to the greater quality of life of residents and Berliners in the future.
In order to meet new requirements and needs, individual areas of the park are to be further developed in the coming years. The aim is to preserve the special identity of the Britzer Garten and at the same time to add new interfaces with the present. In order to ensure holistic planning and implementation, it is planned to bundle all measures in a "Development Concept for the Britz Garten".
The development of the Britzer Garten should take into account the needs and expectations of our visitors. In the course of further conception and planning, there will therefore be opportunities for the many friends of the park to get involved in the development process.
Implementation will be subject to the budgetary framework conditions of the State of Berlin.
From fall 2020 to April 2021, the Blütenachse entrance will be optimized and the renovation of the sanitary facilities will be implemented. For visitors, the redesign will create another automated, barrier-free entrance with numerous bicycle parking spaces. The entrance can then also be used for the first time in the winter season (November to April) and creates quick access to the lake and the sledgig slope.
In connection with the plans of the district of Neukölln to optimize the connection of the park for cyclists, a direct and comfortable access from the neighboring neighborhoods to the family offers in the Britzer Garten will be created.
In addition, the improvement of the gastronomic offer and the addition of new playgrounds to the existing water installations are planned for the future.
