Project 2/12 COMPLETED

Park in Pradl

Award:1st prize in competition
Location:6020 Innsbruck (AUT)
Area:8475 m²
Scope (ÖGLA):phase 2-7
Client:Landeshauptstadt Innsbruck

The Park in Pradl will be a central component of the city‘s future green corridor „Grünzug Egerdach“. On the one side the park is accessed through the Egerdachstraße, which is planned to be the „backbone“ of the green corridor and a well-connected cycling and running route. On the other side the park interlinks with the outdoor facilities of the neighbouring residential development „Wohnen am Park“ (also planned by Kieran Fraser Landscape Design). The park offers a wide range of different spaces and activities for residents and all citizens of the city of Innsbruck. The park consists of two fundamentally different areas that ultimately create a balanced atmosphere between joyful excitement and tranquil relaxation.

Green area

The largely flat and spacious green area includes a senior-friendly rest and relaxation area surrounded by shrubs and perennials, a spacious lawn with a toboggan hill, a climbing sculpture and a tiny hut village below existing trees. Rows of trees and solitary plantings are essential to the parks design and will also play an important part in the future development of the green corridor. Existing trees were preserved wherever possible and now significantly add to the park’s quality.

Sports and play area

The sports and play area includes a well-equipped fitness parkour and a playfully modelled hilly landscape with loosely scattered play equipment. A topographically integrated watercourse makes its way through the gently curved hills before flowing into extensive sand pits. Another highlight of the park is the children‘s track that connects all areas of the playground. The park also has a good number of meeting points - generously furnished corresponding to the respective user groups.
