City of Springe
In 2019 the reinvention of a lost park begins. On a peninsula in the wild south of Springe, in the middle of the ancient hills of the Deister, a courageous and adventurous city comes together to form a forgotten piece of land. And endboss is there too! How do you start out in a strange place that has been a faithful companion for so many for decades? Talk. How do you continue when you want to tell the old-established people something new about their place? Forays. And what do you need to implement an idea? Allies. All this had not much to do with classic urban development and then we dared to say:
>> The site can do more and we are many, so let's think bigger! One trail is not enough, this is the place where you unite and get involved. <<
Trust and courage on both sides enabled us to look beyond the goal and to work out a common vision for the site, which describes concrete measures and makes dreams possible. In the future we will jointly turn the grounds into an open park for all people from Springe and the surrounding area. A modern sports campus consisting of individual and team sports, outdoor and relaxation areas, seating, playgrounds, hiking trails, discovery and learning paths as well as retreats. A youth park where young people can find their own space and sow their own seeds. A park for families, for after work and for the weekend. An arena of spectacle. A place of great games and celebrations. A new meeting place and a space for community. A place to meet, to hang out or celebrate, to linger and play.
