Volkshaus-Lendpark-Mauritiuspark Frohnleiten

 

This park was planned by Alfred Zenz between 1985 and 1990 on an area of 1.2 hectares during the construction of the nearby

hydro-electric power plant.

The park’s centre is formed by a circle of the universe on three levels: two circles of dry stone walls, the planets of the visible universe symbolised by stone cubes in a sand bed and an X-chromosome hour glass paved in a star shape in all wind directions.

There are also ponds, promenades, a children’s playground and a sun-bathing lawn.

Plants tolerating the Central European climate have been collected from all over the world.

Meanwhile some of them have grown into real trees.

In 2000 the town of Frohnleiten was awarded the first prize at the European “Entente Florale”.
