Start of the second construction phase
(kus) The basic renovation of the listed Höchster Stadtpark is moving forward. At the beginning of October, the second construction phase will begin.
In addition to various measures to improve the infrastructure of the park, such as the renewal of many paths, the lighting along the path to Sossenheim and the park benches, the banks of the pond will also be upgraded: At the southern edge of the pond, two small terraces will in future rise above the water surface, and the naturally shaped shoreline will be accompanied by an elongated bench with wooden supports.
Multi-level, dense woody planting will complement the park edges in the south and east of the park. The Schäfer Spring, previously difficult to access, will receive a natural stone enclosure, allowing park visitors to experience it in a new way. The "nucleus" of Höchst's Stadtpark, on the border of the Helene Lange School grounds, will also be creatively reintegrated into the park.
"The first construction phase with the great playground has already shown how positively the redevelopment of the Stadtpark radiates throughout Höchst and the neighboring neighborhoods," said Environmental Affairs Director Rosemarie Heilig. "Soon, lovers and brides from all over Frankfurt will surely make a pilgrimage to the Höchst Stadtpark to have their photos taken by the enchanting pond."
The funds for the basic renovation of the park are being provided by the Planning Department through the Höchst City Center development program.
"I am very pleased that we can continue to set accents in the public space with the Höchst City Center funding program. This is an important building block for advancing Höchst as a business location," says Planning Director Mike Josef. It also shows that the program should be extended: "We've already achieved a lot, but there's still a lot to do."
The second construction phase is divided into three different construction areas, which will be carried out one after the other and will each be cordoned off with a construction fence. Detailed signs provide information about the closed paths and show the detours for pedestrians and cyclists.
