LOCAL PARK MITTE IN THE EXPO DISTRICT OF KRONSBERG, HANOVER




Just as the Local Park Nord, the Local Park Mitte is centrally located in the Kronsberg area. A similarity in concept to the Park Nord is expressed in the decreasing density towards the centre.

A clipped hedge encloses the park concealing the fence line. This is broken at the corners for controlled access points to the park in the daytime. Visitors enter a grove of whitebeam planted on a tight grid into a hoggin surface.


At the centre lies a generously proportioned square-shaped grass clearing. It is approximately 0.8m lower than the surrounding ground level. The difference in height is taken up by seating steps; ramps provide barrier free access. Slightly curving steel band terrace the small fall in ground level across the area.

These level areas are furnished with mobile seats, loungers and play equipment. Rainwater is collected at the lowest point to seep into a field of giant horsetail.
