- Brief Description : The park has a historic background, dating from the Baroque Period, but has suffered from various 'incursions' over past decades. There was originally an historic palace, but this had become derelict and was pulled down in the 1950s to build a school. What remains from this time is a central avenue and some statues, which have recently been incorporated in a new entrance area.
During the Second World War a massive concrete tower with an anti-aircraft gun emplacement was built on the axis for the former historic park, effectively dividing it into two parts. This has been effectively impossible to demolish and has since become a landmark feature of the part. It now houses an aquarium and terrarium ('Haus des Meeres'). More recently an artificial climbing wall has been created on one of the outside faces.
The park was re-designed and renewed recently by the Vienna landscape architecture office of Auböck and Kárász.
