The park itself was rather quiet on my visit, but the promenade leading to the park was well used with bikers, joggers and walkers all passing through the area. The park has benches, a children’s play area, fountains, a covered pavilion and architecture around the park.

This was lovely and runs right along the River Rhine. The sun was out and the temps were nice. Really enjoyed the park, but watch out for the joggers :).

We always pass through this pleasant park overlooking the Rhine on our way for a swim in the Rhine. It's a pleasant surrounding, with many benches, works of art and water fountains.

Nice park in the middle of a major pharmaceutical company's premises. Located immediately next to the Tinguely Museum. Botanical visit, cool in summer, beautiful at every season

We walked to this park one day from Marktplatz, it's quite a walk, but we weren't disappointed with the park when we got there. It isn't that big but it's nice for a stroll. There are a couple of places for a snack or drink and this park is where a lot of people get in the Rhine to float... More
