Park
“The Türkenschanzpark on the outskirts of Vienna is a park that is important both in botanical terms and because of its layout. This park is also one of the earliest examples of public/private partnership in Vienna: Türkenschanzpark was built by local citizens together with the neighbouring "Wiener Cottage" settlement and was only later taken over by the city. In 1883 a committee was established to oversee the "establishment of a public park on Türkenschanze". The park was built between 1885 and 1888 under the supervision of city gardener Gustav Sennholz (1850 to 1895). Emperor Franz Joseph I gave the address at the festivities marking the park's opening on 30 September 1888. The park's name comes from the designation for the area derived from the historical Turkish entrenchments found at the site. After 1892 the park was managed and extensively remodelled by the City of Vienna. At this time the pond was added, and from 1905 to 1909 the park was significantly expanded with the project led by director of urban planning Heinrich Goldemund and municipal garden director Wenzel Hybler. The attractive park railings also date back to this period. The Türkenschanzpark today Today a suburb boundary goes through the park. Türkenschanzpark is known for its interesting, rare botanical plants, which are extremely picturesque features in the undulating landscape. The unusual makeup of the landscape is another of the park's appealing features. Hills are interspersed with meadows, and meandering paths invite the visitor to take a stroll. For reasons of safety, the historical water tower "Paulinenwarte" was renovated and has been open to the public since July 2010.”

“Pötzleinsdofer Park is a beautiful old park with free roaming deer and a little petting zoo. It also offers a huge play ground and is very popular by the locals. The roots of the park date back to the 13th century. In 1801 it was re-designed by Konrad Rosenthal, a famous gardener of the former aristocracy. He built little ponds and planted exotic trees (redwood trees). Today you also find statues and a temple in this beautiful park. You may reach this park within 15 minutes by foot.”
