Park of Life 2000


The basic idea of the garden philosopher Alfred Zenz was to divide the garden of 11,000m² in Raaba into various garden worlds.

The visitor can easily conceive these worlds which comprise lots of small garden areas, front garden, court and kitchen gardens, wetlands, rock garden and shadow gardens with rhododendron, azaleas, ferns, spice herbs, tracks and various levels.
This means that the visitor may find elements for their own private gardens with a large number and variety of plants.
The gardener Alfred Zenz pointed out that in this park the great variety of species shouldn't be reduced but rather extended.

Many of the particularly rare trees and bushes are already 50 to 60 years old and have been grown from the gardener's own breeding, therefore the name "Lebenspark 2000" of the Raaba community - in the planner's and creative initiator's honour, Mr Alfred Zenz.
Visitors will be surprised by the number of varieties of magnolia, moutan peonies, flowering shrubs, such as daylilies, iris, hostas, euphorbiaceae, prairie gay feathers, aralia californica, but also cacti and rare varieties of southern European dry zones.
