Planorama Landschaftsarchitektur: For the Bavarian Garden Show 2019, the City of Wassertrüdingen decided to strengthen and expand its key green and recreational areas. The reference to water (Wasser) in the city‘s name is made tangible as an important element of the site. Two recreational areas with individual characters were created and linked by a green ribbon running through the city. These areas generate a diverse yet harmonious green structure, offering new sports and leisure opportunities, as well as ecological benefits, to the citizens of Wassertrüdingen.
In the southern area, Wörnitz Park (approx. 57,000 m2), the Wörnitz River was renaturalised. Around the waterway are meadows, complying with the EU Flora Fauna Habitat Directive. The river feeds the redesigned Mühlweiher lake, which, as an urban body of water, serves as a harmonious contrast to the natural banks of the Wörnitz. Play areas along the riverfront invite visitors to linger.
